Overview

The region surrounding Superior Arizona is lush with mining history, many large mines are still operating today. This particular trail has long been used to access Bomboy Mine that opened in 1916. It was productive in copper, gold and silver up until it closed in 1971. Most recently the trail has had a rebirth of sorts with the partial closure of Hewitt Station Road, FR 357. The local residents and ranchers closed a 1/2 mile stretch of road to all traffic. This trail connects the two regions of the Montana Mountain area while offering a scenic and historic drive through the Arizona desert. The trail is not accessible by cars.
