Highlight: Spirit Ridge Road
This short connector backcountry road is located north of the Mohave Mountains and runs east into the Buck Mountains from Franconia Road and joins with Through the Bucks Trail at Waypoint 8. Spirit Ridge Road is also the trailhead for Arizona Yucca Mine where you can see a couple old mines, a very well preserved arrastra, and numerous old mining prospects. If you're out on any of these trails and want to explore more of the desert's beauty on other trails, Spirit Ridge Road will lead you through the hills to more.

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. Located in the Mohave Desert of AZ in the winter and the Madison River Valley of MT in the summer.
