“Lost Goldmine Trail from Broadway Trailhead to Cloudview Road”
— Jeff Archbold
None that I am aware of - saw bicycycle tire tracks and horse hoof prints
Should be a good 4 Mile run
This trail, starting at the Broadway trailhead, connects the Jacob's Crosscut Trail to the Petroglyphs trail on the Southside of the Superstition Mountains, continuing on to Cloudview Avenue where you can access the Petroglyphs and the rest of the Lost Dutchmine trail (just follow Cloudview avenue, which is paved for 1/3 Miles East). The trail is well marked and fairly easy to hike, no elevation gain, no scrambling, etc... just a couple of small washes.
Once you leave the trailhead you go .5 miles and the trail splits. If you go north you'll run into the Jacon's crosscut if you east it will lead you to the Cloudview road parking lot with access to Petroglyph trail. After 1 mile you go through a cattle gate, and from there on you'll be hiking parallel to the BLM fence. The views of the Superstitions are always amazing.
The Broadway Trailhead has about 5 parking spots, you'll need to get their early. if you want to park
Flora & Fauna
Typical Senoran flora and Fauna - hiked this trail last srping and did see a Gila Monster near one of the washes
