skill levels. 26802 North 102nd Way, Scottsdale, AZ. Phone: 480-312-
0990. 10 miles/16 kilometers

Camelback Mountain
Sheer red sandstone cliffs and its telltale hump draw thousands of
hikers to Camelback Mountain each year. Hiking to the top is not for
beginning hikers—the two summit trails are strenuous climbs over
sometimes-tricky trails. Some easier trails allow close-up exploration
around Camelback’s base. Trailheads and trails are open from sunrise
to sunset or 7 p.m., whichever comes first. 5700 N. Echo Canyon
Pkwy, Phoenix, AZ. 12 miles/19.3 kilometers

all covered by saguaro at low elevations, with
other cacti and bushes higher up. There are four trailheads for the
most visited western half that includes the Superstition Mountains;
at the end of Peralta Road (FR 77, a good quality 8 mile gravel track
starting near Gold Canyon), First Water Road (FR 78) branching off
Arizona 88 near Goldfield, Canyon Lake Marina, and FR 213, a rough
track south from the Apache Trail a few miles beyond Tortilla Flat.
For an introduction to the mountains, several short trails start from

great restaurants. Visitors conveniently can spend a
day hiking, horseback riding, or bouncing in a Jeep on
trails and dirt roads that crisscross this area. Indeed,

shops, impressive art galleries and fine restaurants

“America’s Most Vertical City” and “Largest
Ghost Town in America”. Located high on top
of Cleopatra Hill (5,200 feet) between Prescott
and Flagstaff is the historic copper mining town
of Jerome, AZ. Today the mines are silent, and
Jerome has become the largest ghost town
in America. Jerome is now a bustling tourist magnet and artistic
community with a population of about 450. It includes a modicum of
artists, craft people, musicians, writers, hermits, bed and breakfast
owners, museum caretakers, gift shop proprietors and fallen-down-
building landlords. Due to the 30-degree incline of the mountainside,
gravity has pulled a number of buildings down the slope. To the
delight of some, one of those buildings was the town’s jail. Those
buildings still standing make for interesting visiting and with a little
research you can find their historical significance. 121 miles/194

Kartchner Caverns
Kept secret since its discovery in 1974, Kartchner Caverns was announced
to the world in 1988. Still virtually pristine, this massive limestone cave

wilderness will remain protected while offering visitors a rare tour
through multicolored cave formations. All tours are guided by a trained
tour guide. Reservations are strongly recommended. Arizona-90 South,
Saint David, AZ. 520-586-CAVE. 183 miles/294.5 kilometers

“The Town too Tough to Die,” Tombstone was perhaps the most
renowned of Arizona’s old mining camps. Days of
lawlessness and violence, which nearly had then-
President Chester A. Arthur declaring martial law in
Tombstone and sending in military troops to restore order,
climaxed with the infamous Earp-Clanton battle, fought
near the rear entrance of the O.K. Corral, on October
26, 1881. The citizenry of Tombstone decided rather than

depending on a vanishing mining industry, they would focus their time

and energy on tourism and restoration. Truly a Historical American
Landmark, Tombstone is America’s best example of our 1880 western
heritage, which is well preserved with original 1880’s buildings and
artifacts featured in numerous museums. 201 miles/323 kilometers

Grand Canyon
It may be well worth your while to plan a short
trip to the Grand Canyon while you are in
Arizona. While camping, mule tours, air tours
and back country hiking trips may be a part of
some vacation plans, often people just want to
drive up for a day or two, see the magnificence
of the Grand Canyon, and then head back to
the Phoenix area. If you plan to go to the Grand Canyon for just the
day, you can get in at least 4 or 5 hours before heading back home.
This, of course, assumes you leave early and prepare for a long, tiring
day. Phone: 928-638-7888. 220 miles/354 kilometers

Hualapai Skywalk
The glass walkway protruding over the rim is on the Hualapai Indian
Reservation, not in the Grand Canyon National Park. The Skywalk
is at the west end of Grand Canyon approximately 250 miles (400
km) from the South Rim. Peach Springs, AZ. For information or to
make reservations: 877-716-9378 or 702-878-9378. 267 miles/429.6
