Trail Information


Windmill Road is a great place to see an iconic, old school, windmill powered water well. It takes you through an area most often enjoyed by hikers, but can also serve as a great way to get into the southern portion of the BLM's Table Mesa Recreation Area.

This is nice scenic trail that connects BLM 9954 to the Table Mesa I-17 exit; continue following the east end of this GPX past the piepline trail towards I17 and then left at the next trail intersection. If you are running "Crapshoot" (Table Mesa Rd / 9952 -> 9954 / Table Mesa Rd), this trail makes a safer alternative exit than the north end of 9954 where the final part of the trail runs inline with the informal shooting range along Table Mesa Rd.

All the rain this winter has lead to a super bloom. I visited as the flowers were just starting to bloom, and right now they should beginning to hit full bloom, especially near the windmill.

Really enjoyed this trail. Entered from the Table Mesa West trail and jumped on the N Old Mind Rd trail heading north to the Table Mesa Trail. Narrow trail through canyon washes and saguaro’s.
