Review №1

The weather was excellent today (7/25/20). It was raining when we pulled off the highway and stopped raining by the time we got to the collection area. We took the northern exit to the area. We made it no problem in a 4 door sedan. The rain wasnt long or hard, not worried about flash floods. We tried 4 different areas 2 of the 4 were successful. Successful; From the sign & sign in book, about 100 yards further and to the left. Collect down the draw near the lava rock. Also just north of the sign. Good luck! Have fun!

Great place to rockhound. Lots of fire agate and quartz tight on the ground. If you want to find even better specimens then a little digging will get you there. Also, if you have the tools, there is an area where the agate and quartz are still embedded in the rocks. Take the dirt road a little farther, go down the hill and check out the little ravine.

Lots of tiny pieces under the sign. If you want bigger specimens , find a vein and start digging.

This place is AWESOME!! Its very much a desert environment with virtually no shade so be prepared with lots of water and sunscreen!There is tons of agate and fire agate all over the place! Its close to the Black Hills Byway which is an old road that connected Safford AZ, with some small mining towns in the area. The road is narrow but easily traveled with a high clearance vehicle. I was in GMC Sierra truck and had no problems. Im sure its beautiful in the springtime.
