The road meanders along ridges and climbs to over 7,000 feet. There are enough side roads here to spend an entire afternoon adventuring. Low desert runs can be extremely hot during the summer, so this trail is a nice break with cooler temperatures. Visit the historic Boriana Mine complex for an interesting side trip.
The Boriana Mine was the largest tungsten mine in Arizona, but closed in 1957 after a major fire.
