Technically the Apache Trail begins at Mill Avenue in Tempe, but the most scenic portion of road begins in Apache Junction at the intersection of Idaho Road, and continues approximately 40 miles east through the Superstition Mountains until ending at Roosevelt Dam and the junction with State Route 188.

The western half of the road is paved, but the pavement ends a few miles east of Canyon Lake. The dirt road is graded but washboards and ruts are common. The road is narrow and features numerous sharp curves and steep hills often with no safety barriers. Some creek crossings are subject to flooding during rain. The road is generally not recommended for RVs or vehicles towing trailers.
