Trail Highlights
A local favorite for fall color and escape from the summer heat. This trail climbs over 4000 feet in elevation from the floor of the Verde Valley to the top of Mingus Mountain. Views become more spectacular and expansive as you climb, with great historic and active mine sites on the way, and lots of camping and picnic options up top. This trail is a crowd pleaser for veterans and novices alike. 
Most of the trail is easy to moderate, with one short challenging 4x4 section that requires careful wheel placement and high clearance. This is a one-Jeep-wide shelf road that will require some careful maneuvering should you meet an oncoming vehicle. Closed at the top in Winter. Fall color usually peaks mid-October to mid-November.

Moderate 4.

19 miles off-pavement. Allow 3 hours.

Recommended for high-clearance four-wheel-drive vehicles with low range transfer cases (4L). One tough spot offers Labrador- and basketball-sized rocks to pick over.
