The Overarching Question

This bridge carries a well-known highway past a town that holds an important place in Arizona’s mining history. But what we’re looking for here is the name of the trail that goes under the bridge. Here are two hints: The trail’s name includes the name of the town, and one of its trailheads is on a street named for a productive nearby copper mine.

Let’s Play Bridge

This bridge has been around awhile, but it’s still about 1.4 billion years younger than the rocks on which it sits. You’ll find it at an Arizona body of water that isn’t as well known as its nearby sibling but still offers spectacular scenery and hiking.
