Black Hills rockhound area is located on the north side of Arizona route 191, between Safford and Clifton, about 18 miles north of Safford. Follow the dirt road about 2 miles to the heart of the collecting area. By looking at Google Earth, I'm thinking 18 miles north is actually more of a eastern direction, and the dirt road might be Old Safford Road.
