Hero: East Ajax Mine Road
small-sr Icon

Ajax Mine Road is a moderately rough and rocky trail that parallels the Lower and Upper Ajax Technical Vehicle trails. The road starts at the Five Points intersection and travels east to connect with Telegraph Canyon Road. The road is the primary exit route from the Ajax TV trails and Highway to Hell. But Ajax Mine Road is a great beginner trail and suitable for any high clearance 4-wheel drive vehicle. The road has a few narrow washout sections, but with careful line choice, they should not be a problem for most 4x4s. The road ends at the Ajax Mine, an abandoned lead mine that ceased operation in 1916.

Several spots along the road can be utilized for vehicle camping. Halfway through the trail, one of these wide campsites marks the location of a rare crested saguaro.
