Lost Mines of the Agua Dulce Mountains Professional Review and Guide
"Day hike or backpack around Agua Dulce Peak. The traveling is easy at first across decomposed granite, and saguaros and palo verdes dot a nearby arroyo. After passing through the gap, the track heads for the south end of Sheep Mountain, becoming faint in the spots where it crosses dry washes. Just before reaching the gap at the foot of Sheep Mountain, the old road passes a hillock littered with broken quartz. Atop this hillock are several “glory holes” where prospectors dug into a quartz vein in hopes of discovering precious metals."
