Maynard Mine Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"A long climb up the ridge between Andreas and Murray Canyons leads to a scenic point and the old Maynard Mine."

"Jim Maynard established a small tungsten mine on the narrow ridge between Andreas and Murray Canyons during World War II. This trip makes a steep climb to the mine site, offering a vigorous workout and sweeping views. Go on a cool day."

"The Maynard Mine Trail is one of the more challenging trails within the Indian Canyons trail system. It once served as the access route for a tungsten mine that operated during World War II.

It begins in Murray Canyon and climbs steadily to the top of a ridge separating Murray and Andreas canyons, then drops over to a razorback ridge that leads to the mine."
