We did a 10.7 mile hike starting in fountain Hills. Dixie mine to prospector Trail to Bell to Windgate and read Windmill back to Dixie mine
This is a very scenic hike that connects to several other trails for longer hiking options. Most people miss the mine as they think the tailings are the mine. The mine is in a wooded canyon at the end of trail. People remove the cairns to keep it secret. There are petroglyphs just beyond the mine entrance.
Easy family friendly trail. Fun to take the service road down to climb to the mine.
