Overview

This trail extends from the historic Kentucky Camp westwards past Tunnel Spring to the wilderness boundary. Technically, much of this is part of the AZT: Segment 2 - Santa Rita Mountains, Kentucky Camp.

Description

Park near the site gate and ride down into Kentucky Camp where you can see exhibits in the main building and a monitor (water cannon) used in hydraulic mining.

The trail continues down a grassy valley then climbs to join a dirt road for about a mile, then the singletrack resumes and drops into Gardner Canyon where the second trailhead is situated.

Much of the trail follows the remarkable Stockton water project, a system of ditches and a metal pipeline that siphoned water under Gardner Canyon for use in hydraulic mining. Interpretive signs explain the parts of this system.
