The Superstition Mountains are a designated Wilderness area. The Wilderness is named for Superstition Mountain on the east, and is comprised of several other prominent mountains. Battleship, Bluff Springs, Black Mesa, Miner's Needle, and Weaver's Needle are but a few of the other mountains in the Wilderness. Collectively, they are referred to as the Superstition Mountains, or just Superstitions. They are crisscrossed with numerous animal and hiking trails. Some areas are so accessible, that a hike is nothing more than a Sunday afternoon stroll in a park. Other areas are so inaccessible, that the most rugged individual would find the going impossible. The lure of the Superstitions lies in their awesome beauty and the challenge of the unknown. Tales of old Spanish mines and hidden treasure increase the magical spell. The most famous lost mine of all is securely tucked away somewhere deep in the mountains. The Lost Dutchman Mine, subject of many stories, and target of many searches, is still waiting to be rediscovered. Have fun, enjoy the mountains, but be very careful, for they can become extremely dangerous, especially during the summer months.
