Trail Overview
Moss Wash
This trail starts out rocky and challenging as you drive through a rugged wash. Next is a winding mountain road with fantastic views of the valley below. There is a lot to see along the trail. Don't miss Gold King Mansion. You can walk through it, but please be respectful and leave everything as you find it. The last portion of the trail takes you through a nice, thick forest, and you'll end at Hualapai Mountain Road.
History
The Gold King Mansion, built early in 1929, was used to entertain wealthy clients and served as housing for the foreman of the Gold King Mine. Much of the building remains intact due to its poured concrete construction, rare at that time in this part of Arizona. The mansion was used less than a year when the Gold King Mine failed following the October 1929 stock market crash. A kiosk at the site has a picture of the original structure.
Getting There
From Kingman, head east on Interstate 40 to Exit 66 at a large truck stop. Head south on Blake Ranch Road 11.4 miles, ignoring side roads, to start of trail on right.
