Inscription.  

The Apache Trail was created by Native American tribes traveling between their summer homes in the mountains and winter homes in the desert. The Trail became a roadway in 1905, for use in hauling supplies to the construction site of Roosevelt Dam. The Southern Pacific Railway renamed the road "Apache Trail" and offered it as a scenic side trip for travelers.
