The residential community of Gold Canyon
sits at the foot of the Superstition Mountains
along US 60, 7 miles east of Apache Junction and 40 miles from downtown Phoenix. The developed area is 3 miles square, mostly on the north side of the highway, built on gently sloping, desert land where many native cacti grow amongst the streets and houses. There are two main routes through town, Superstition Mountain Drive
and Kings Ranch Road
; the few shops and restaurants in the area are located at the south end of each, near US 60. Gold Canyon has three golf courses: Mountain Brook, Superstition Mountain and Gold Canyon, and it adjoins one of the most popular trailheads for hikes into the Superstition Mountains, the main destination being Hieroglyphic Canyon
