Highlights

Highlight: Buck Mountain Connector
Buck Mountain Connector is located one hour north of Lake Havasu City, Arizona. It is one of several roads originally built for mining in the early 1900s. This short connector trail is an alternate route to or from Palo Verde Mine, making the drive a loop rather than an out and back trail. This allows you to explore more of the beautiful desert scenery. The highlight photo features Cholla Cactus.

Mapping Crew - Arizona and Montana

Cory grew up traveling the logging roads outside Durango, CO with his dad for his woodcutting business and fell in love with everything about the outdoors. He's moved around a lot since then, from several rural areas of Southern California to Montana, Wyoming to Arizona, even living on a commercial gold mine in Nevada in for several years. In all these areas he has explored several thousand miles of old dirt roads and trails, as well as many old mines and ghost towns.
