Additional Details:
Once Seen, Always Remebered Majestic Guardian of the Apache Trail. Superstition Mountain was so named because of the great fear with which it was regarded by the Pima and Maricopa Indians who told gruesome tales of attacks by Apaches who lurked on the heights and swooped down from stronghold visiting death and torture upon the peace-loving desert tribes. Legend has it that a mysterious little old man, Snowbeard, the Dutchman, came trudging down from the mountain heavily laden with gold nuggets and died before divulging the whereabouts of his fabulous find. Each year in early Spring the Dons' Club of Phoenix, as host to hundreds of winter visitors, conducts a trek into the Superstitions and enacts the stories of the region
