Superstition Mountain is a prominent mountain in the central region of Arizona, about 43 miles east of Phoenix. It rises to approximately 3,000 feet above the Salt River valley and is home to several attractions for outdoor recreation. Superstition Mountain is also home to a famous gold mine known as the Lost Dutchman's Gold Mine. While there are many attractions in this area, the main focus of the city is its gold mining heritage.
The population of Superstition Mountain is diverse, with almost half of the city's residents under the age of twenty-four, 4% from twenty-four to forty-four, and 27.2% from forty-five to sixty-four. The median age was 47.5 years. Despite the diverse range of residents, the town is known for its relaxed atmosphere and a slower pace.
Among the top reasons to visit the town is the scenic Apache Trail. The first 17 miles of the road are scenic and offer multiple overlooks of the area. In early December, motorcycles lined the road. Some strolled along the wooden boardwalk or listened to live country music in the open-air BBQ Patio of the Superstition Saloon. The town started as a stagecoach stop in 1904 and remains an Arizona classic.
