This easy, formed trail runs in a straight line along a wide ridge connecting Mexican Border Road with Parker Canyon Lake Road. The trail is open and offers good views down into Bodie Canyon on the east. Further up, the trail follows alongside Jones Canyon on the west. Special Attractions: Remains of Sunnyside ghost town; Sunnyside Cemetery; Hiking trail access to Miller Peak Wilderness and the Copper Glance Mine; Views into Sunnyside Canyon and the Huachuca Mountains. High-clearance vehicles are preferred, but not necessary. This trail is dirt roads, but may have rocks, grades, water crossings, or ruts that make clearance a concern in a normal passenger vehicle. The trail is fairly wide, so that passing is possible at almost any point along the trail. Mud is not a concern under normal weather conditions.
