Lost Dutchman State Park was actually named after a missing mine that belonged to a dutchman, not an actual missing person. After Jacob Waltz (the dutchman) died in 1891, many people went in search of his hidden gold mine, but none had any success. Some seekers were even met with "foul play" or even death. Adding more of the Superstition to this Superstition Mountain Range.
I spotted a picture of this State park in a travel brochure , and I had to come check it out for myself. I was not dissappointed. We were staying in Scottsdale which was only about an hour away.
