Visit the former mining town of Mammoth, Arizona – where there were once gold ore deposits of mammoth proportions.

Right Now

Dig into the treasures of Mammoth. Although the town’s root stemmed from mining, present-day Mammoth rewards visitors with its natural beauty and abundant recreational opportunities.

The Galiuro Mountains east of Mammoth provide the perfect setting for hiking, camping, off-roading, and exploring the remnants of old mining settlements. The nearby lower San Pedro River area is a birder’s paradise. Look for southwestern willow flycatchers, Gila woodpeckers, and American kestrels, among others.

For a short trip through several of Earth’s biomes, drive southwest of Mammoth to Biosphere 2. Built as a survival experiment, the 3.14-acre glass-enclosed facility is now a large-scale research laboratory. Tours are offered daily.
