Goldfield Ghost Town
For more than 115 years, Goldfield Ghost Town has welcomed travelers from all over the world to discover the charm and history of this authentic gold mining town. In its heyday, Goldfield was a busy bustling little outpost perched atop a small hill between the mighty Superstition Mountains to the east and the Goldfield Mountains to the west. The first gold-strike was made in 1892, and it took just a little under a year before the town came to life. Today, visitors can walk down Main Street, explore the many shops and historic buildings and tour the historic Mammoth Gold Mine and Goldfield Superstition Historical Museum. Popular attractions for kids and adults are panning for gold and hopping aboard Arizona's only narrow gauge train.
The Superstations Mountains in Lost Dutchman State Park
Lost Dutchman was named after a legendary gold mine that was worked on by a lone prospector (Jacob Waltz), who left no records of its location. It is believed to be somewhere around Weaver's Needle, in the Superstition Mountains and is one of the most storied “lost mines” of the West. Many hiking trails are offered here that range in distance and elevation. One of the most popular hikes in the Superstitions is the Peralta Trail which offers immaculate views of the infamous Weaver's Needle. Do you believe the gold is in there?
