Set against a backdrop of the Gila Mountains near Yuma, Wellton is a peaceful community that was once a mining hub.
Wellton played a big part in the settlement of Arizona back when it was the Wild West. Delve into this past at the Wellton-Mohawk Pioneer Museum, which gives a glimpse of the town’s pioneer origins, plus a collection of local mineral samples and information on the region’s mining past.
The famous El Camino del Diablo, a thousand-year-old trail that was most notably used by Spanish conquistadors, runs from Wellton to Ajo. Pack up your hiking gear and journey through some of the most remote areas of the Sonoran Desert, or hop in your four-wheel-drive vehicle for a bumpy ride.
Looking for more modern-day amenities? Don’t miss the Butterfield Golf Course. Tee off amid a beautiful 360-degree view of the Gila Mountains and the Sonoran Desert. If you’re not up for a full 18 holes, try the driving range and putting green. And if you forgot your clubs at home, don’t worry: the pro shop is open seven days a week and offers rentals so you’ll never miss tee time.Visit City Site
