Highlights

Highlight: Dutch Flat Road
This trail is located on BLM land just over the mountains to the east of Lake Havasu City, Arizona. You will see several distinct, unique mountain peaks poking up from the horizon while on this trail, Castaneda Peak at 2651' McCracken Peak at 3524', and Aubrey Peak at 2569' elevation. To the south is the Aubrey Peak Wilderness Area which is part of the Rawhide Mountains, to the east is the McCracken Mountains and the home of the historic McCracken silver mine. The views of the mountains and numerous peaks are great! This is a very pretty drive and provides access to several other major trails as well as intersects with the Arizona Peace Trail (AZPT) and Standard Wash just south of Lake Havasu City. This is a nice trail for pretty much anyone to get out and enjoy and also allows access to many other trails and old mines that that are scattered along the south side of the Mohave Mountains.
