Trail Information

Highlights

Mineral Mountain Road serves as one of the entrances to the very popular OHV area commonly referred to as "Florence Junction." From Mineral Mountain Road OHV enthusiasts can plan a full day’s adventure with any number of the local trails. This expansive area is littered with old mining claims, mine tailings, petroglyphic writings, mine shafts, and beautiful scenic views. There have been, on occasion, deer, and desert tortoise sightings as well. The trail can be used to access some of Arizona's most famous rock crawling trails. Ajax Mine and Highway to Hell are just a couple of the legendary trails in the area. If you're just looking for a great scenic 4x4 tour, joining this trail with Box Canyon and Price Road makes for an amazing day on the trail.

Just ran Mineral mountain Road today. Nothing unexpected. Trail is as I remember it from last time. There was some recent heavy rain in the area but smooth sailing.

The waterfall on the south end of the trail remains the same after the same but just north of the waterfall there are two new challenges. Both are as challenging as the waterfall. Stock Rubicons will struggle, but is doable. The monsoon of 2021 has really changed the trail. Trail rating should be change to moderate 4-4. Video to be posted 9/1/2021

Arizona National Forests and State Lands are back open for travel. There are still some very important fire restrictions in place. These restrictions can often change by specific areas.
