      Thanks for your interest in the hike to the Calamity Jane mine. The round trip hike totals a bit over a mile. The hikes will start from the Percha Bank at 11:30am and 2:30pm. (sorry for my slow reply!)

    I represent the Camino Real Trail Association (CARTA) and would like permission to set up a card table and 2 chairs with membership applications for our non-profit on Saturday.

    more details please! time of hike, distance? tour of homes continous or at specific times?

      Hi Mary Kay – the finalized schedule is now on the website. The hikes to the Calamity Jane mine leave from the Percha Bank museum at 11:30am and 2:30pm both Saturday and Sunday. The round trip distance is about a mile and a quarter. The hike is not strenuous – but it does takes you into the Gila National Forest, across the Percha Creek, and up a hill. It would be possible to drive most of the way if necessary.
