This hike up Trail 65 gives you the best views of Yavapai County and the adjacent
countryside. Getting to the trailhead brings you through some of the best forest in the area; including Ponderosa Pine, Aspen, and the variety of upper elevation fir trees that can be found in this area.
At one time this used to be the most active mining area around; from panning at
the Hassayampa River to hard rock mining at the Davis Dunkirk Mine.
