  • This place is AWESOME!! It's very much a desert environment with virtually no shade so be prepared with lots of water and sunscreen! There is tons of agate and fire agate all over the place! It's close to the Black Hills Byway which is an old road that connected Safford AZ, with some small mining towns in the area. The road is narrow but easily traveled with a high clearance vehicle. I was in GMC Sierra truck and had no problems. I'm sure it's beautiful in the springtime.
  • Good place to find little pieces of fire agets. Can be hot.
