"Apache Trail" Tortilla Flat by Aaron7
Tortilla Flat Travel Guide: 19 reviews and 61 photos
The Apache Trail runs along the Salado River Basin from Apache Junction in the west to Roosevelt Lake in the east. It varies from two lane highway in the west to a twisty dirt path on the eastern end. It was only 41 miles, so I thought it would take an hour to drive. But I found it was more of a three hour tour due to the blind turns, steep grades and one lane roads. Don't trust the curve ahead signs, they are way too tight to be curves. ;-) There are some great vistas along the way though so be ready to stop a lot and keep the camera handy!

Tortilla Flat is a flyspeck town along Apache Trail. It cosists of little more than a saloon and gift shop. Just a rest stop before you start the arduous trail east toward Roosevelt Lake. Or just after if you head west like I did! Although it is almost the midpoint of Apache Trail, it lies very close to the transition of the trail from a two lane highway to a twisting narrow dirt road carved into cliff sides.
