The road typically thought of as The Apache Trail is the US 88 from Apache Junction to the Roosevelt Dam. I see Google Maps also has the section of US 188 from the Dam to Globe named The Apache Trail.

Copied from my previous RR; The Apache Trail began as a route used by the Apache Indians as they moved through the Superstition Mountains. It became heavily used during the construction of the Roosevelt Dam in 1905. President Theodore Roosevelt toured the road by car in 1911 while on the way to the dam and lake named in his honor. He called The Apache Trail "One of the most spectacular best-worth-seeing-sights of the World".

The Apache Trail is a popular day trip for tourists in rental cars. Most of the tourist traffic runs eastbound making the opposite direction my preferred choice for a motorcycle ride.

Back to the Photos!

Who painted my name on the "Guardrail"?

As you no doubt guessed, I'm a google maps victim! I really liked your pictures and thought on the off chance I ever get out that way it'd be an interesting road to ride so looked for it on GM.

Thanks for the clarification (and additional picture).

some pics from a ride to Riyadh, for the 8,500km service of my "Big Blue"

there was a dust storm for a few days before i had to leave for the 450km ride to riyadh. this is how it looked during the dust storm


very low visibility and absolutely un-breathable air. i had to wait for 2 days to let the storm blow itself over.


stopped by at a gas station for a small break
