Mineral Mountain Road is the northern entrance to the famous Florence, AZ, OHV area. From Mineral Mountain Road, offroad enthusiasts can plan a full day's adventure with any number of the local trails. This expansive area is littered with mining claims, petroglyphs, wagon stops, and beautiful scenic views. Occasionally, there are deer, big horn sheep, Gila monsters, and endangered desert tortoise sightings. Mineral Mountain Road can access several of Arizona's most famous rock crawling trails. Ajax Mine, Axle Alley, and Highway to Hell are just a few of the area's legendary trails. If you're looking for a great scenic 4x4 tour, Box Canyon and Price Road make for a fantastic and moderate day.
The route was once a maintained gravel road connecting several mines and the old town of Reymert. After the mining years ended, the land was used for military artillery training. The local Arizona National Guard would notify the public when the firing was live by raising a red flag at the trailhead. Over the years, the military stopped firing into the mountains, and this rugged Sonoran desert landscape found a new purpose.
