“Hike into Arizona's past with a visit to the Gould Mine site.”— Chris McD
Family Friendly A relatively short trail to the Gould Mine with a manageable sloping grade for reasonably capable families.
When you reach the mine, take a moment to inspect the old shaft (now covered with a metal grate). There are also remains of an old powder house where dynamite was stored.
Just to note, the turnoff into the King Canyon Trailhead is on Kinney Road just northwest of the entrance to the Desert Museum. The turnoff to the King Canyon Trailhead is narrow, a little rocky, and comes up on you pretty fast, so be careful.
