The Mane Challenge

This imposing lion statue is one of two that guard the entrance to a short hiking trail near one of Arizona’s most beloved cultural sites. We’re looking for the name of that site, which dates to the late 1700s and has undergone extensive restoration efforts in recent years.

Answer & Winner

Legends of Superior Trail. Congratulations to our winner, Ash Bowers of Florence, Arizona.

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.
