Gold Canyon Trail System Coming Soon
View Lost Goldmine in a larger map
Lost Goldmine was built in partnership with SALT and Pinal County. It took seven years to complete and was finished in 2001. It’s a multi-use trail for hikers, bikers and equestrians. There are two distinct segments of Lost Goldmine. The east and the west legs. The west leg is rocky and technical for about 3 of the 3.5 miles. The east leg is sublime singletrack with enough tech to keep you coming back to clean and polish those rough spots.
I have no idea why Lost Goldmine East is not a regular ride for valley riders. It is a Desert Classic esque out-n-back (although much slower than DC) that ranks up there with the likes if Pass Mountain, Wild Horse, and Twisted Sister. Throw in the additional MTB loop singletrack and the Lost Goldmine area is a destination trail.
