Fun as heck to go offroading or hiking all the way to Oatman- land of donkeys. Keep in mind that rocks can be sharp and during summer especially hot ones can rip right through a tire.

A fun trail, very easy at first but after you cross over Boundary Cone there are some slightly challenging descends & ascends. Keep on the pipeline trail and follow north / east to reach Oatman. Be sure to sign the 2 log books placed on the trail near the railroad and also make a pit stop to your right near the Oatman Mountain to check out the veteran memorial. Easy/moderate trail, no lockers needed.

Had a great time, easy trail some good climbs. THere are a couple of great abandonded mine shafts that we explored briefly. Oatman is a funny old town, mules wandering the streets.
