Directions to Trailhead

Trailhead Coordinates: 33.985965, -112.145219

Starting Point: Table Mesa Recreation Area

The easiest way to access AZCO Mine Road / BLM 9999 Trail is from Table Mesa Road on the west side of I-17. However, this requires a State Trust Land Permit (see the "Access issues" section) as you will be crossing State Trust Land to get to it. To avoid State Trust Land, you can connect from Old Black Canyon Highway, or Black Canyon Trail.

Camping

Dispersed

Land Use Issues

The section of the trail nearest the Agua Fria River has been blocked off by the property owners indefinitely, but there's really not much to do on this section of the trail anyway, and it can still be accessed by taking a detour via the Little Pan Mine Road. There are other sections of roads that cross private property as well. Please be courteous and aware of these areas to prevent them from being blocked off as well.

I've been writing for TrailsOffroad since August 2015. Before that, I had been off-road in places like central and northern Utah, east and west Texas, and central and northern Arizona. I've even driven off-road on an island in the Caribbean (the one time I've driven a Jeep off-road). I joined TrailsOffroad because it combines my three favorite hobbies: Off-roading obviously; I've also been blogging for most of my life - even before it was done on the internet (ever heard of a dial-up BBS?) - and even wrote a political column for Examiner.com for a few years; I also have experience with building websites and promoting on social media. These experiences made writing for Trails Offroad a good fit for me, and I've been enjoying it very much. When I'm not working at my IT job, or playing with my kids, I go on runs with a group of people who like to collaborate on [AZFJ.org](http://azfj.org), and run my own online marketing and web content company (my wife calls it my hobby business) [The Rotisory Foundation](http://rotisory.spaldam.com) (named after a BBS I used to run back in High School and College before the Internet became overwhelmingly popular). I'm a big Toyota fan. I've owned two 4x4 Tacomas, an older 4x4 Toyota pickup, and I'm now on my second FJ Cruiser (the first was a TRD SE 6 speed, that I got rid of after my twins were born).
