The historic and scenic Bradshaw Mountains are one of the richest gold-filled mountain ranges in the entire country, creating the perfect setting for our Gold Rush Hiking and Gold Panning Tour. Our tours create a scenic and educational journey amidst some of the most rugged landscapes Arizona has to offer, with opportunities to see giant saguaro cacti and abundant desert wildlife. You will be accompanied by a guide with vast knowledge of the local mining history and plant and animal life. The tour will begin with a scenic, moderately difficult hike from our property down to the Agua Fria River. The hike offers incredible views and plenty of opportunities for photos. Once at the river, we will spend some time panning for gold and learning about the history of gold mining here in the Bradshaw Mountains. You are welcome to keep your findings! We will then finish the tour out by making the hike back up the Agua Fria River canyon.
