This trail commences at the Hualapai Mountain Park, a peaceful sky island far above the arid plains surrounding Kingman. The park offers excellent camping and picnicking facilities, with many areas to choose from. In addition there are 16 stone and timber cabins available for rent year-round. Miles of hiking trails invite exploration. In winter there is often snow on the top of the mountain, and although there is access to the park, the Flag Mine Trail is closed. Special Attractions: Extensive section of shelf road; Picnicking, hiking, and camping at Hualapai Mountain Park; Old mining buildings of the Boriana Mine; Long, moderately challenging trail. High-clearance 4WDs are required. This trail has either a rough, rutted surface, rocks up to 9 inches, mud and deep sand that may be impassable for inexperienced drivers, or stream crossings up to 18 inches deep. Certain sections may be steep enough to cause traction problems, and you may encounter very narrow shelf roads with steep drop-offs and tight clearance between rocks or trees.
