This is a very fun day trip close to Phoenix that explores the historical mining areas north of Lake Pleasant in the foothills of the Bradshaw Mountains. In the late 1880’s many adventurous souls braved the brutal conditions and fierce Apache indians to find their fortune in this remote and rocky landscape. This trail takes you to the China Dam that was built in the late 1880’s for hydraulic mining operations on Humbug Creek and then continues on to an old mining homestead deep in the mountains on Tule Creek. The trail is an offshoot of the main back way to Crown King trail and there are many other side trails that can be explored north of Lake Pleasant but bring a map and GPS since it is very easy to get lost and road conditions can change frequently due to weather.
