Nice trail to hike. At the end of the trail look up in the ridge of the mountain side and you will see the last of the palm trees native to Arizona. Dog friendly. Trail is usually empty. Bring water.

Really stunning views, the Kofa mountains have to been seen. The trail is pretty easy, stock 4x4 will get it done with no problem.

This is not an easy hike. It is 2600 feet elevation gain with several exposures. And free climbs. This is at least a moderate to difficult hike

I've done a hike to the top of Castle Dome a couple times with some friends and the views are absolutely tremendous. This has definitely been one of the most physically demanding hikes I've done. Be sure to go during cooler seasons, the summer is absolutely brutal.

Easy off-road drive on a well maintained dirt road. Nice hike up in the canyon.

Very remote. You can get here with 2wd if it hasn't rained, but I could see it getting messy if it has been wet recently. Swansea was a small mining town, and there is a walking trail through the buildings that are left; very interesting if you're interested in history/mining.
