Trail Overview
Wickenburg Mountains
If you are looking for a remote ride with great points of interest, this is it. Enjoy beautiful mountain views and visit Bradshaw's Grave and an old homestead at Copperopolis Townsite. You can return the way you came or take the new exit route. Explore the trail in reverse by starting from Lake Pleasant. Unlicensed vehicles allowed.
History
Issac Bradshaw, namesake to the Bradshaw Mountains, died in 1886. His grave has been well maintained over the years and is easy to find, marked by a white picket fence. Little is known about Copperopolis, except that it had a post office in 1884 and lasted about a year. The mine can be seen across a ravine on a hillside east of the stone cabin.
Getting There
From Highway 60 east of Wickenburg, turn north on El Recreo Drive just east of McDonald’s. Merge with Constellation Road and continue northeast 8.6 miles to Buckhorn Road. Turn right and stay on Buckhorn Road 4.3 miles to obscure road on left at bottom of tight curve. Look for large metal water tank hidden in trees.
