Mountains, Ghost Town and a Saloon!

We recently had the opportunity to enjoy a fantastic weekend near the base of the Superstition Mountains just outside of Apache  Junction, Arizona. The riding was spectacular and endless. Great trails throughout the Superstition Mountains and Tonto National Forest.  The trails were plentiful and offered challenges for the experienced horse and rider as well as easy riding for the more novice riders!

On the first day, we found ourselves headed for Goldfield Ghost Town. A real Arizona Ghost Town (a first for me)! It was a 35 minute ride from our camp at the OK Corral (which was OK!). We arrived at the hitching post behind the Mommoth Steakhouse & Saloon. After hitching horses, we headed off to the bar to enjoy a glass of wine and beer while taking in the spectacular view. It was great experience! Live music on the porch, a great mix of people — Harleys and Horses were both at home here.

On the 2nd day, we headed north to ride in Tonto National Forest…it was a great ride! Wide open trails and an absolutely pristine desert landscape. We once again found ourselves back at the Mammoth Saloon to relax and enjoy lunch before heading for home.

If you haven’t had the opportunity to ride out here — you should give it a try — you won’t be disappointed. We had a wonderful stay at the OK Corral. They offer covered stalls and full RV Hookups.

Happy Trails!
