Dixie Mine

A 7-mile hike to a former mining site on the east edge of the McDowell Mountains, this hike has little net elevation change, but lots of ups and downs. There will be a brief discussion of the mine's history when we arrive at the site. Allow 3 hours.

Dogs are welcome in the Preserve but only service dogs are permitted on guided hikes.

There is a $3 entrance fee at the trail head.

    David did an awesome job of leading this hike - very knowledgeable and kept a good steady pace. First time on this hike for me and I thoroughly enjoyed it as did both my guests! It's worth taking the short trek to see the petroglyphs as well.
