Flowers were blooming when I hiked this trail today, so it was incredibly beautiful. The trail terminates at the remains of a mine. The bunkhouse is still there - although the roof and a portion of the walls is gone. The mine shafts are barred, so access is prohibited. Not that you'd want to enter even if you could - setting aside the issue of personal safety, there is a strong smell of bats exuding from the mine.

A good winter destination. This is on the Mexican border in the southwestern Arizona desert. The Organ Pipe Cactus are rather unique. The monument has two scenic loop drives, and the whole area is rather remote.

SUPER BEAUTIFUL! It is like being on another planet... coming from the midwest this was just such a striking, gorgeous route.... adore it and will definitely go back.

There are areas to do foot hiking, but I would start from a visitor center and take mapped routes. Bring water, watch out for snakes and scorpions!
