An out-and-back on rolling trail with some climbs.

John Geronimo

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.
