Close to Phoenix, the historical mining areas north of Lake Pleasant, China Dam, and the Tule Creek Homestead are a fascinating look back into the early settlement of the Bradshaw Mountain Foothills. Branching off the popular Backway to Crown King trail, this track leads to the China Dam, built in the late 1880s by immigrant Chinese laborers for hydraulic mining operations on Humbug Creek. The trail continues to an old mining homestead deep in the mountains on Tule Creek, slowly reclaimed by the desert landscape. Be sure to spend a day visiting these fantastic relics of the past before they are forever gone.
