Lost Dutchman State Park: Treasure Loop Trail

Phoenix - Scottsdale - Mesa

Lost Dutchman State Park borders the Superstition Wilderness east of Phoenix, Arizona. The park is named for the legendary gold cache claimed to have been found by a Dutch prospector who died before revealing its whereabouts. In reality, recent geological evidence makes it unlikely that any large deposit of precious minerals are near the surface. Treasure hunters remain undaunted and continue to search for the lost gold of the Dutchman. The Treaure Loop Trail is a short, steep and enjoyable hike up to Green Boulder (2580') at the base of the Superstition Mountains.
