Overview

Fun mountain loop starts in Cottonwood and goes to Jerome.

After passing through unimpressive lowlands, the road climbs quickly up the side of Mingus Mountain into the forest, where you find good dispersed camping. The trip offers views of Verde Valley and Cottonwood as you climb. You’ll pass the large Copper Chief Mine, which is closed to the public. Please obey all signs and warnings. Forest roads are open to unlicensed vehicles. Side Trail #512 is restricted to 50″ wide or less. Fall color peaks early November. Not recommended in winter.
