Mining Area Ride North of Morristown

Date(s) - 01/11/2022
9:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Mining area North of Morristown.


Tuesday January 11TH, 9:00 AM, maximum 15 ATVs/UTVs.

We’ll see many minesites & millsites, and at least one big mill that’s pretty much intact, the Anderson Brothers’ Mica Mill.  All in the area North of Carefree Hwy / AZ74, near Morristown.  We’ll ride 44 miles, or less if we spend more time at some sites or run into trail problems I don’t expect.  I have shortcuts or workarounds if needed.  Going the full distance with lunch and many other stops should take about 6 hours.

If you haven’t seen the Mica Mill, it’s a must. It was ingeniously built using a lot of World War II surplus materials. It’s also a great lunch stop, with some shade.

IF YOU HAVE SEEN THE MICA MILL, you probably haven’t seen many of the others or much of my route.  Please trust me on that, as the entire complex route would be very difficult to describe here or in an email.  🙂

We’ll leave at 9:00 from a parking area along the West end of Castle Hot Springs Rd not far from AZ74.  I’ll email more precise instructions and a Google Earth image of the parking area to those who sign up.


Registration for this event is closed.

      Ken, I’m leading the ride. I keep a little database of the rides I’ve led and the riders who’ve ridden with me in those. Looks like you haven’t ridden with me before. Looking forward to having you along. Rod Moyer, aka rodmo
