Tortilla Flat, Arizona

A nice day for another Motorcycle Ride.  This time to Tortilla Flat in Arizona.

Here’s a quote from their website:

Tortilla Flat is an authentic remnant of an old west town, nestled in the midst of the Tonto National Forest, in the Superstition Mountain RangeTortilla Flat started out as a stagecoach stop in 1904 and neither fire nor flood has been able to take away this historic stop along the Historic Apache Trail.”

The road from the West, State Road 88 is paved but VERY ROUGH and has a lot of curves and switch backs for about 20 miles.  It wasn’t a very enjoyable on my motorcycle.  The curves and switch backs would have been enjoyable if it wasn’t so rough.  This road needs some serious work.  The road leading out of town to the East towards Roosevelt Lake, is unpaved and I would Not recommend taking on a large motorcycle on it.

If you like Jalapeno and Chili, I recommend the Jalapeno Chili at the Superstition Saloon.  Very good (and hot!).

  1. Very cool. Love those bar stools!

  2. Nice to hear your take on that road. I camped out at Lost Dutchman State Park. I planned on taking Route 88 North and East in the morning. Then I stopped at that fake ghost town Goldfield and started talking to the lady working at the cafe. She told me 88 was messed up and a few bikers who lost friends would end up at Goldfield looking for help. So after a few stories of carnage and death I took Route 60 instead. Although Tortilla Flat looks cool, I guess I chose wisely. Cheers!
