Arizona Trails

Very popular mountain drive with several great hiking trails. Dispersed camping allowed. Make sure to pack out all trash. Primary access point for heavily-used Rolls OHV Area. Stay on marked roads and trails at all times.

Easy TrailRating
Easy. Graded dirt road but washed out and rutted in places. High clearance recommended. Four-wheel drive beneficial. Small stream crossings possible. Snow likely at top late fall and winter.

A real structure to see, not just a pile of mine tailings. The Sunflower Mine (a.k.a. National Mine) produced mercury. Inside the processing building which still stands, you’ll find a large pipe used to tumble a reddish-brown ore called cinnabar. The fine particles were burned in vertical furnaces with coke to produce mercury gas. The gas liquefied after being cooled in U-shaped tubes.

Difficult TrailRating
Difficult. Stock SUVs can reach Sunflower Mine. Difficult portion of the trail begins later. It becomes rocky and narrow with tight brush in places. One narrow shelf road with loose rock. Slippery when wet.

Towering red rock buttes set against a backdrop of deep-green forest and clear blue sky make this road one of Arizona’s most photogenic. The road descends over 2,200 feet from the top of massive Mogollon Rim to the town of Sedona. Memorable hiking trails depart from several places along the road, and dispersed camping is allowed above Vista Point. The drive is impressive in either direction. Elk may be seen before sunset. Mountain bikers looking for an easy day will enjoy the ride down. If you park, hike, or stop along the route, you’ll need a Red Rocks Pass. Although fairly short, this trail has to be considered one of the best in Arizona. It is extremely fun to drive and the red rock scenery is knock-out beautiful. This is an extremely popular route and traffic can be very heavy at times. Pull-outs are provided. Do not widen the trail by trying to pull over anywhere other than the pull-outs. You may have to back up. This is also a very popular hiking and mountain biking area, so be alert and courteous at all times. If you park, hike, or stop along the route, you’ll need a Red Rocks Pass

Difficult TrailRating
Difficult. Several large rock ledges require high ground clearance but the obstacles are not overwhelming because little articulation is required. The hardest obstacle is called “The Steps,” which is driven downhill. This obstacle is very steep and will be intimidating to an inexperienced driver; however, stock SUVs with high ground clearance should be able get down just fine. You may scrape bottom so skid plates are recommended. This trail is very well marked and easy to follow.

This is a challenging four-wheel-drive route but is also a great historical tour. Your trip will be greatly enhanced if you learn a little about the area before you go. A book I’ve found most helpful is Crown King and the Southern Bradshaws: A Complete History by Bruce M. Wilson. It explains the history and development of the mines and mining towns with pictures from the past. Knowing how things looked back then will help you understand what remains today

Difficult TrailRating
Difficult. Most of this route is easy to moderate; however, there are a few difficult places that will challenge stock vehicles. The road has gotten worse over the years, especially the steepest part in the last four miles. Erosion has exposed more rocks and deep ruts have formed. Aggressive stock vehicles with good articulation can get up this trail but they may need to stack rocks or be helped with a tow strap.

Easy TrailRating
Easy. Signs recommend only trucks or off-highway vehicles, but cars (not low-slung) can make it in good weather. Although the road is wide and well-maintained, expect a bumpy ride. Much of the lower portion is a shelf road. This road is closed during the winter.
