Highlight: Polaris Mountain
Polaris Mountain is a pyramid-shaped promontory in the northern portion of the Kofa Mountains. From the Kofa mining district, this mountain pointed straight up to the star Polaris, thus the name. A short and scenic side road off King Road takes you to the base of Polaris Mountain and into Big Dick Canyon. The end of the trail has wonderful mountain views and a great vista back across the broad King Valley. It's also a great jumping-off spot for some off-trail hiking into the rugged Kofa Mountains.
