So this is an easy trail to get to by car. Didn't notice any graffiti when I was there this time though there was a sizeable pile of cigarette butts in the parking lot ( ](*,) nothing I hate more than littering). Crossed the bridge and breezed on by the ruin as I had my pup with me. Hiking the wagon trail is really interesting and makes you feel like you're in touch with the past. We went to the end of the trail and turned right on the jeep trails. Down a little ways we went left and went up a pretty steep and rocky hill. The trail kept on for a while and we followed it around until we were able to stop at the peak to the let of one of the radio towers. Awesome view of the stockton hill area of Kingman. Stood there and let the wind cool me off for a little while before heading back down.

Back down at the main jeep trail we turned left instead of returning to the wagon trail. We followed the jeep trail around to where a bunch of other trails hooked up and turned right to follow the power lines back to the road. On our way down that road we saw another old building of some sort on our hike down that trail. Be careful if you take that road there are a few areas where the gravel is loose (I fell down once). Overall a nice hike on a nice day.

*I'd like to note that this trail has virtually no shade once you get out to the end of the wagon road. Do not hike this trail in the warmer months you'll roast.

While visiting Kingman this 4th, thought I would get a quick hike down in this NW region of Arizona.

The area was nice, but disappointingly covered in spray paint. This historic site is located right in the middle of Kingman and it's sad to see how people treat it.

Todd and I hiked past the wagon ruts and then continued south then east, climbing one of the nearby hills for a 360 view of the area.

Weather was warm despite the 6pm start time.

The city hasn't made many improvements to this area but the most important one was saving the land, total isolation from the city makes this an enjoyable in town hike. I saw no one else during my visit.
