Stanton, Weaver and Octave Ghost Towns

 

Type: 4WD

 

Region: Central Arizona

 

Difficulty: 1.5 out of 5

 

Time: 2 - 3 hours

 

Stanton is an easy 4WD/high-clearance 2WD adventure. The trail leads to a trio of ghost towns near Wickenburg. The Lost Dutchman's Mining Association now owns Stanton, but there's still lots to see. You can also visit the Octave Cemetery or use this trail to access Hassayampa Canyon.

I was there in June and saw the cemetery at Octave and Weaver. Very nice lots of old graves and one building at Octave (I think). Plus I stopped by the Congress cemetery (actually there are two). Not really into graves and such but the history is impressive. Really wanted to see the Congress Mine but that looks like it is off limits. :-(
