Trail Information

Highlights

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.

The road was in good shape. The terrain added enough interest to keep one's interest for the short trip between two main trails.

We walked the high ground above the washes up towards the base of the mountains as the sun went down. There a quite a few old stacked rock campfire rings nestled away back there. Interesting to picture prospectors scouting this area while the San Francisco Mining District and Oatman just north of here were booming.

Just a connector trail to the Buck Mountains that's the road less traveled. Why backtrack out Palo Verde Mine when one can enjoy a change of scenery of this winding road?

Clouds developed later in the day, providing rare shade and spotty shadows across the valley. Today was a beautiful day for getting out on the trails.

This is one of the trails that don't get traveled very often, there are nice views of the valley and the mountains around you all along this trail. It's a nice option when headed up to Palo Verde Mine to watch the sunset then back down Buck Mountain Rd making the trip a look rather than backtracking on the same trail.
