Tortilla Flat Arizona

Tortilla flat is a super day drive out from the city of Phoenix, so on the days you want to go do some site seeing for some gorgeous scenery this is THE place to do it. Before you come to Tortilla Flat you will go through Apache Junction, pass Goldfield Mining town, The beautiful Superstitions and then have about 12-15 miles or so of twisting, turning roads, but all of it through some great desert scenery!

    Besides being useful, helpful, informative, and interesting, your Tortilla Flat page was also humorous in spots. Great job.

    You're a brave person to live in Az.! I am fair-skinned and don't handle heat that well.

    Hi just passing through and saw you were from AZ. Have you ever been to Arcosanti? I will remember NOT to go to the campground in Tortilla Flats! Cheers, Kat
