The Historic Apache Trail
The Apache Trail was a stagecoach and wagon trail which runs through the Salt River valley and along the boundaries of the Superstition Mountains. The Apache Trail was named after the Apaches who traveled this route during their earlier migrations, and whom also helped build the roadway and Roosevelt Dam during the early 1900s.
