Harquahala Road runs from Salome in the north to Interstate 10 in the south. The well-maintained road winds through the cactus-studded Little Harquahala Mountains. The road was first created to serve the mines that sprung up in the low mountain range, the largest being the Harquahala/Bonanza Mine at Martin Peak. A small mining town sprung up, supporting the mine and the nearby Golden Eagle Mine. Today, the town's cemetery sits right by the road.

Large campsites are plentiful on the trail's southern end, and a couple are available nearer Salome on the north end.
