Moss Mine Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This short spur trail leads along a rutty trail to the remains of the Moss Mine. The major attraction is the mine, which has some interesting ruins of stone buildings, many adits and shafts, and a steel headframe. The ruins make an excellent subject for photographers. There are many side trails leading from Moss Mine and along some of the washes, and a keen explorer will be able to find one of several different routes through to Mossback Wash Trail.
However, these unmapped trails can be confusing to follow and it is easy to get bushed. Make sure you are carrying at least a topographic map and compass if you are planning to attempt any of these routes. Special Attractions: Extensive remains of Moss Mine; Access to a network of other 4WD trails; Can be combined with Mossback Wash Trail and Thumb Butte Trail to make a fullday tour. High-clearance 4WDs are preferred, but any high-clearance vehicle is acceptable. Expect a rough road surface; mud and sand are possible but will be easily passable. You may encounter rocks up to 6 inches in diameter, a loose road surface, and shelf roads, though these will be wide enough for passing or will have adequate pull-offs."
