Highlight: Black Cross Butte
East of Phoenix Arizona is the historic Apache Trail which travels through the Superstition Mountains region. The mountains are rugged and unforgiving but they have a strong and mysterious draw on the adventurous type. Black Cross Butte is a short trail off of the paved section of the Apache Trail offering a backcountry 4x4 experience without having to travel too far. It accesses a region that has many unique slot canyons that can be explored on foot. While the trail is short, it still has incredible panoramic views of the Tonto National Forest. Once you reach the top of the trail you can venture down into the canyons for an incredible backcountry hiking experience. There are no marked hiking trails in this area.
