Overview

This is a short easy to access trail, about a mile long, with some side roads for 4x4 exploring. The site now belongs to Pima County and is fenced off and marked with abundant "No Trespassing signs. You can still pick your way through the desert and up to the fence, without crossing it, and see the remains of the silo. You can also play around in the mud on the edges of Missile Tank, a cattle pond just to the west. Or you can try out some of the offshoot trails which offer different challenges.
