Tip Top Mine

Location Black Canyon City, AZ
Rating Moderate,
Length 13mi

Vehicle Types


Long, high climb to ruins at major mine complex.

This is just one route in a vast network of OHV roads known as the Table Mesa Area. You can spend many fun days exploring here. In 2011, the area was undergoing many changes with installation of better route markers and development of approved extreme trails (See Trail #39 for details). A map of the area is planned for publication. Our route follows a main artery to interesting historic locations, including Indian Fort and the Tip Top Mine. Shooters, please pack out your trash.


Trail Ratings Defined

The trip is fairly easy to Waypoint 05. After that the road winds along a sandy gully, where conditions vary depending on recent storms. Most stock high-clearance SUVs with 4WD can reach the mine.

The road at the water crossing just before you get to waypoint 03 has been closed. The new route is to take the left turn towards the new staging area/campground. The turn coordinates are N33 59.659 W112 08.908 and from there drive to waypoint 03.


Rate this trail on a scale of 1 to 5.

The mine is closed to public. This should be removed from the book.
