Lost Dutchman State Park

Lost Dutchman State Park was named after the fabled Lost Dutchman Gold Mine. The park is located in the Sonoran Desert at an elevation of 2,000 feet, and offers a variety of hiking trails, nature trails, 70 campsites, picnic facilities, and special programs throughout the year.

Hiking Trails

There are six trails in the park: The Native Plant Trail is a .25 mile accessible trail near the Visitor's Center, which features desert plants; The
Treasure Loop Trail is a 2.4 mile round trip trail with very nice views that has a 500 foot elevation change and terminates at either picnic area (I took this one); Next is the Prospector's View Trail, a .7 mile trail that connects some of the other trails (I took this one too); the Jacob's Crosscut Trail is a .8 mile trail along the base of the mountain; that continues 4.5 miles past the park area along the base of the Superstitions; the Siphon Draw Trail which is a 4 mile round trip trail that is a very scenic hike, and winds up into a canyon known as Siphon Draw; and last the Discovery Trail which connects the campground and day use areas, features information signs, a wildlife pond, a bird feeder and viewing bench.


There are also some picnic tables in various parts of the park.
