King Valley Road Professional Review and Guide
"The primary reason for including this trail is that it gives access to a number of other scenic 4WD trails within the Kofa National Wildlife Refuge. It also gives limited access to the historic Kofa Mining District and the mine that ultimately gave its name to the whole region. Passenger vehicles can use this route as a starting point for hiking, hunting, and wildlifewatching within the refuge. The road from US 95 to the King of Arizona Mine area is maintained by Yuma County. The wide, graded gravel road travels across the broad King Valley with the Kofa Mountains to the north and the Castle Dome Mountains (with Castle Dome Peak) to the south. Special Attractions: Castle Dome Mines Museum; Wildlife viewing within Kofa National Wildlife Refuge; Interesting trail through rugged Sonoran desert scenery; Hull Mine; McPherson Pass. This trail is graded dirt but suitable for a normal passenger vehicle. It usually has gentle grades, is fairly wide, and has very shallow water crossings (if any)."
