    To hike
    From the Florence Junction intersection of highway 60 and Sr 79, take SR 79 south 5.2 miles to an unmarked dirt road going off to the east. There is a flagpole at the entrance(if a red flag is flying this means active military in the area-read warning signs) Travel east on Cottonwood Canyon Road. At about 5 miles you will come to another flag pole and cattle guard. Continue about another .5 miles to a Y intersection. Bear right and you will quickly come to a gate which is sometimes locked. If open the road continues to a gravel operation. Continue thru the gravel quarry and take the road south. At the next pass there is ample parking on the right. Be aware that gate could be closed and locked late in the day if you stay too long. In that case you would continue south and make your way to Price Road and come out near Florence.
