There are many things to keep you busy when you visit the Superstition Mountains. If you want to get a bit of history on the place, check out the museum and historic buildings around the grounds. A dirt path will take you to the Elvis Memorial Chapel, Apacheland Barn, Twenty Stamp Mill, Gallows and finally the Windmill. Several movies were made in some of the locations on the grounds.
A short distance from the museum sits the Goldfield Ghost Town and is known as “the valley’s only authentic ghost town”. You can ride the rails on the Narrow Gauge Train around the town and through the desert. The Goldfield Mine offers a gold panning experience and lets you keep what you find. With over 20 shops, exhibits, and eating establishments such as a saloon, this old west ghost town is a fun place to visit.
Some people like to park their vehicles and one of the many recreation spots throughout the mountains and look for UFO’s. So many people have reported seeing something strange in the skies over the Superstition Mountains which they could not explain. Weird lights and objects have been seen by all types of witnesses. Lots of folks say that the mountains have some sort of mythical powers which draw in the beings from other planets. I’m not sure, but I know these mountains have some sort of energy that I felt when I visited the area.
