1/20/19: Sunflower Mine Loop, Sunflower, AZ - 4x4 Difficult

The Sunflower Mine loop is located off Highway 87 (Beeline Highway) near Mt. Ord. The trail offers a variety of challenges: rock crawling in the creek, steep loose climb out of the creek, narrow and sometimes off-camber shelf roads, and more! The trail is very scenic, as it winds back into a canyon, and offers neat views of the highway and Mt. Ord. Please take note of rig minimums and suggestions.

Meet-up: 9:00 AM at the Baja gas station (Chevron) on Hwy 87 and Fort McDowell Rd: Map link here...

Note: You may want to get gas first someplace else cheaper!
