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!

All loaded up, I'm going to be towing the dub, see everyone at the gas station at 9:00. It's been a couple of years since wheeling with passport, Smiley Rock, WJ has grown up a bit since then!
