Overview: The West Silverbell Mountains are seldom visited, except for the seasonal javelina hunter or rancher checking on cattle. These hills are low and not as impressive as the Silverbell Mountains, but the mining operation is taking over those bigger peaks. If you like being truly alone in the desert, this is a fine place, when the weather is cool. We saw no other vehicles all day. This short hike is along an old road which ends after a mile. Off trail hiking could easily be added, as the visibility of landmarks is easy. The vegetation is diverse and the javelina are healthy. We spotted a wolf on a drive around the hills. Check out the nearby Silverbell Cemetery. Watch your map, as this area borders on reservation lands.
