Superstition Mountain, near Apache Junction, Arizona, as seen from the Usery Mountains, looking southeast.

   Superstition Mountain (elevation 5057 feet, 1541 meters) towers above Apache Junction and Mesa in this southeasterly looking view from high in the Usery Mountains.  The mountain also shares the name "Superstition" with the range of which it forms the western end.  Legendary in the lore of the American Southwest, somewhere near this peak lie the riches of the Lost Dutchman's Gold.
   The Superstition Mountains were mostly created from immense layers of age volcanic ash, a rock which is essentially barren of gold and other metallic minerals.  That fact only adds to the mystery of the mythical mine.
   It remains a wilderness of surrealistic rock formations, exotic cacti, and twisting canyons -- one of metro Phoenix's most scenic hiking areas.
   See the GeoHistory page if you want to know more about why the landscape looks the way it does, or return to the map of "The Rocks of the Valley of the Sun" for more view locations.
