Superstition Wilderness Area, located east of Phoenix, is revered by gold diggers, hikers and horseback riders. Whether your family outing in this section of the Tonto National Forest takes you on a search for the Lost Dutchman Gold Mine, Hohokam rock art or stunning desert landscapes, the well-developed trail system covering roughly 160,000 acres (64,750 hectares) ensures something for everyone. Yet this starkly beautiful and often rugged wilderness area can be inhospitable to those unprepared. Select a trail that matches the ability of the least skilled member of your group and plan your outing with the weather in mind.
