Gold Canyon is located 35 miles due east of Sky Harbor. It is nestled into the Superstition Mountains and almost every home has a mountain view. It also has two championship Nicklaus award winning public golf courses. This bedroom community has about 90% of its homes built since 1996.It is a lovely place for an escape vacation, combining the tranquility of its mountain setting with the proximity to the city of Phoenix less than an hour away. Another great advantage of this location is the 2,000 ft altitude guaranteeing summer days that are many degrees cooler than the city below it.
