I have been looking at the Gold Canyon area for quite some time via internet.. So far, I love what I am seeing. Can anyone provide detailed information about this area? I know that there is recreation available in the Superstition Mtns. but what else does this community provide? How are the neighorhoods? Crime? Shopping? Doctors/Hospitals? Last winter husband and I were in Mesa, liked it however a little on the "busy" side for us traffic wise. Is Gold Canyon a little less?
Thank you so much for any info.

My cousins live in Gold Canyon. It is out there -- close to the Superstition Mountains, but connected by a major highway. It is beautiful, fanatstic views, quiet, single family homes, nice landscaping for Az. Not many stores and such yet. Lots of critters - snakes, scorpions, cayotes, gila monsters, etc. Have to be careful with pets.

Thanx for your reply. Lots of critters, WHAT?! I can handle most but I think ya lost me when you said scorpions and snakes. Do the residents have any problems with the "critters" getting into their homes?

I own a house in Peralta Trails, which is a gated community in Gold Canyon. Since the house is on a wash, with a view fence (great views of the Superstitions), I always thought I would hear of problems with critters, but none of my 3 renters in 7 years has ever mentioned a problem. I don't even have a pest control service - and there are no problems with bugs or other critters getting in the home.

Thank you for your reply. I am definately not a fan of scorpions or other critters. Ya know, there was a special on the Discovery Network that showed scorpions being a problem IN the homes out there. The renters eventually moved out as the owner was bitten in her sleep. YIKES!! Mercifully she did recover.
Gold Canyon looks like a beautiful, quiet area. Planning on coming out this winter (around oct-nov) to check out the area. I can hardly wait. I need to get out of Illinois for the winter months due to health reasons.
Thanks again for your reply.

Good luck! I'm from Chicago myself. Been here 7 years and love it - I also love to visit my former home town when I can ....in the summer time.
