Apache Junction is a city within the counties of Maricopa and Pinal, Arizona. Named for the junction of the Old West Highway and Apache Trail, it is located at the geographical coordinates of 33.415035 degrees north latitude and 111.546025 degrees west longitude, which is an intersection on an unpaved stagecoach trail to the Superstition Mountains that is nearby.
In 1922, the city was open to the public as a historical landmark and scenic byway. Today, it is part of a 120-mile long "circle trail" that starts and ends in Apache Junction. As of the 2019 U.S. Census estimates, the city has a population of 42,571 people. It is bounded by the Goldfield Mountains on the north, the Superstition Mountains on the east, and the city of Mesa on the west.
The Superstition Mountains is a federal wilderness area that includes a range of mountains to the east of the Phoenix Metropolitan Area. The main mountain, Superstition Mountain, is a popular recreation destination for residents in the area. Established in 1939, the 159,757-acre attraction is governed by the United States Forest Service. Previously known as Sierra de la Espuma (Fome Mountains), it is home to many natural features, hiking trails, and the Lost Dutchman's Gold Mine.
In legend, the Lost Dutchman's Gold Mine is said to be a rich gold mine hidden somewhere in the southwestern part of the U.S. Believed to be in the general vicinity of the Superstition Mountains, people have come to Apache Junction to search the mountain ranges in a quest to find the mine. The mine is named after Jakob Waltz, a German immigrant who founded it in the 1800s but kept its location a secret. The Lost Dutchman's Gold Mine is considered the most famous lost mine in America. Artifacts of the Lost Dutchman can be found on display at the Superstition Mountain Museum. It is open Thursdays through Sundays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Situated at the base of the Superstition Mountains, the Lost Dutchman State Park takes its name from the lost gold mine. It is managed by the Arizona State Parks & Trails and is open daily from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Visitors to the park can go camping, earthcaching, wildlife viewing and hiking the Lost Dutchman's Trail. Featured species that are easily spotted in the state park are Desert Mule Deer, Coyote, Desert Cottontail, Greater Roadrunner, Bobcat, and Gila Monster.
