Likely In-Season!
Denoon-Reymert Mine Tour is a 6 mile round trip hike with 550 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 33 miles east-southeast of Mesa Arizona. February and March are the best months to enjoy this hike. This hike involes off trail navigation. Review triplogs, photos and the route to understand the terrain before heading out.

Overview: Several Silver mines in this area created frenzy of activity and building. Hike the remains of Denoon and the Reymert area and washes to find signs of activity and foundations from the settlements here in the 1890's. Access to the trailhead involves crossing State Land(permit required), BLM land, and Tonto National Forest (both not requiring a permit). The historic Silver Smelter still stands. Tailings from old mine sites line the canyon. There is still an active mine one mile east of this location which prevents this from being a side excursion for the Arizona Trail.

    WARNING! Hiking and outdoor related sports can be dangerous. Be responsible and prepare for the trip. Study the area you are entering and plan accordingly. Dress for the current and unexpected weather changes. Take plenty of water. Never go alone. Make an itinerary with your plan(s), route(s), destination(s) and expected return time. Give your itinerary to trusted family and/or friends.

    Permit $$
    AZ State Land Recreational Permits are available for an individual ($15.00), or a family limited to two adults and children under the age of 18 ($20.00).
