Most locals are aware of the Apache Trail, with scenic and historic designation , one of the most beautiful desert roadways in America. Many adventurous souls search for the next outting and Dutchman Hunters are seen regularly using the road to gain access to the Superstition and Four Peaks wilderness areas searching for gold. Built from 1903 - 1905 , it was built as a service road to get supplies to the site of the Roosevelt Dam. Originally called the Tonto Wagon Road, the name was later changed to the Apache Trail. Over the last 100 years the road has been realigned several times due to additional dams being placed downstream. Apache Indian labor was used extensively on the construction of the Tonto Wagon Road. The Roosevelt Dam was constructed from 1905-1910. The Apache Trail is nowdays also known as State Highway 88. For a fun adventure hike this old deserted section of road.
