Hero: Savanic Mine

The NPS 153 trail, tucked away in the heart of the Arizona Strip, is an epic off-road adventure that is both thrilling and daunting. This unmaintained trail follows the perilous edge of the North Fork Canyon. Along the way, the trail offers breathtaking views of the rugged terrain and the remnants of the old Savanic Mine, a copper mining operation that dates back to the early 1900s. The challenging trail is also remote and difficult, thus not recommended for those without experience or proper equipment. Nor should this trail be run alone, as it could be potentially dangerous. If you're up for the challenge, the NPS 153 trail to the Savanic Mine promises an unforgettable experience.
