Description

Merchant's Description

Named after the fabled lost gold mine, Lost Dutchman State Park is located in the Sonoran Desert, 40 miles east of Phoenix. Several trails lead from the park into the Superstition Wilderness and surrounding Tonto National Forest. Take a stroll along the Native Plant Trail or hike the challenging Siphon Draw Trail to the top of the Flatiron. Depending on the year’s rainfall, you might be treated to a carpet of desert wildflowers in the spring. Enjoy a weekend of camping and experience native wildlife including mule deer, coyote, javelina and jackrabbit.

The park offers a variety of hiking trails, nature trails, picnic facilities, 72 campsites, a dump station, restrooms, showers, and group use areas. The visitor center sells maps and other publications.

Before you hike, be prepared with enough water and proper footwear as the trails are steep and challenging.

    Bring what you need, because there aint nothing here.

    My desert Fortress of Solitude. I love this place! So beautiful and peaceful. The Superstition Mtns. are majestic and cactus is strewn all around. A great stop if you want to escape PHX for a bit.

    Killer hiking here in the winter months, far too warm in the summer. Siphon Draw is my favorite trail - extremely challenging, but very fun and with a stellar view from the plateau up top.

    Back to climb some rocks
