The most difficult part of this trail is finding it. The trailhead isn't marked, but it's about 1 mile North of the Sunset Point rest stop on 17N. Look for the windmill as others have mentioned. It's right off the freeway, so be careful pulling in and out. The gate was locked but we just squeezed through. This is really more of a walk than a hike, but there are some trickier areas of you go off-trail and explore the mine ruins a bit. Wear sturdy-soled shoes!

Thanks to the reviewer who mentioned the windmill and gate. Between that and the GPS, it was easy to find. We weren’t sure if we should go in, the place to squeeze though the gate had barbed wire. However some of it was cut so we went for it. We didn’t do the full thing, probably a mile in and back. Very pretty views, a couple of ruins (well a foundation) it was a nice easy hike. Complete solitude, except a few cows on the way back. I’d go again and go farther.

Nice outing. A little hard to find. Park in spot between the road and the windmill then squeeze thru the fence and you're on your way. There are some nice things to see. We added a little to the hike and went off the trail to see the mines up close.

Gates off the highway are locked. If you want access you will have to park on the outside and walk in from the highway.

Took me a minute to figure out where it is. If you pass a windmill and what looks like a tin storage container you've gone too far. There is a lot of cows around and I think I even saw a long horn as well. Make sure you wear shoes that you don't mind getting fecal matter on...there is a lot of cow poop out there. Other than trying to find the entrance it was a good 2.5mi hike/walk! Would definitely do this again. I highly recommend this for beginners or someone's who's looking to get active and kill some time!!

This is a very interesting hike in the Agua Fria National Monument. It follows an old forest road and mining road to a collection of archeological sites. Petroglyphs, an ancient pueblo, and the remains of a mining operation can be found near the trail.
