Superior, Arizona History Trail is a nice activity to explore wither you are traveling through Superior or if you are looking for a day trip outside of East Valley. We share a few photos from our visit.
We were traveling to The Black River for a few days of camping, when we traveled through Superior, Arizona. It is located about 45 miles east of the Phoenix/ Mesa Gateway Airport. There was a rest area on the south side of the road. We stopped to use the facilities and noticed the Caboose Visitor Center across the street and decided to check it out.
Caboose Visitor Center
While the visitor center was not open while we were there, we decided to explore the hike and park. I trust there would be brochures inside the caboose to describe the area’s attractions. If you have been inside, let me know if I am correct.
Take a moment to read the markers and learn a little history of the mines. As you walk on the trail there is much old equipment to view. The elevator was pretty cool as, you can walk through it on the trail.
There were many benches and picnic tables in the park. It is a great location to stop and stretch your legs and relax. If you would like to take a walk, there were many paths to circle the trees.
