Owner description: Named after the fabled lost gold mine, Lost Dutchman State Park is located in the Sonoran Desert, 40 miles east of Phoenix. Several trails lead from the park into the Superstition Wilderness and surrounding Tonto National Forest. Take a stroll along the Native Plant Trail or hike the challenging Siphon Draw Trail to the top of the Flatiron. Depending on the year's rainfall, you might be treated to a carpet of desert wildflowers in the spring. Enjoy a weekend of camping and experience native wildlife including mule deer, coyote, javelina and jackrabbit. New for 2014! A four mile Mountain Bike Loop Trail has opened at the park -- this is a great way to enjoy the park's beauty! The park offers a variety of hiking trails, nature trails, picnic facilities, 134 campsites, a dump station, restrooms, showers, and group use areas. The visitor center sells maps and other publications. Before you hike, be prepared with enough water and proper footwear as the trails are steep and challenging.

“Different challenge options”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

we've taken our kids and visitors here several times. there is a great loop that is around 3 miles, it's challenging enough for the adults but not too hard for kids. there are some benches along the way to rest on, and they are memorial benches so that is sobering. great photo ops in this area. it is about 30-40 min drive from Gilbert and fairly easy to find. there have been threats to shut it down so check with the state dept before venturing up there. we usually stay a couple of hours, take plenty of water and food.
