The Lost Dutchman Mine

 

The story of Jacob Waltz

Superstition Mountain Arizona

The story of Jacob Waltz the Dutchman

Weaver's Needle is the landmark in just about any story of the Lost Dutchman or The Haunted Treasure of the Espectros by Gordon D. Sherrifs. I have a copy that is almost in pieces

The elevation is 4553 feet. Legend has it that the Lost Dutchman's Gold lies within its shadow.

You are looking to the north, from Fremont Saddle, on the Peralta Trail a hiking trails in the Superstitions.
