A.K.A. Pinal Burial Grounds
Ghost Town of Pinal City, Pinal County, Arizona
Latitude N33* 17' 17.8", Longitude W111* 8' 04.1" (Elevation 2,651)
From US 60 just west of the city limits of Superior, AZ. Take the Silver King Mine Rd. Set your trip counter to 0.0. You will pass a Harborlite Corp. plant on the left. Past the plant the asphalt turns to a dirt road. (I suggest you use caution if it has been raining or is currently raining, as you will cross a ravine. The road will be extremely muddy. I attempted this once after a rain and turned back. I did have 4WD but chose not to chance it) The road winds down and crossing a ravine and back up. You will come to a fork in the road at 6/10's of a mile. Keep left. There is a mile marker post reading "8". There is a power substation down the right hand road and a mile marker post reading "229".
The road will curve down to the left and up again. You will come to an intersection at approximately 1 1/10's of a mile. You will also note a "Quest Fiber Optic Cable marker" on the right side of road past the intersection. Continue past the intersection approximately 75 feet and you will see a turn off to the left. (note: If you find yourself going down hill and to the right you have gone too far).

Not long after you turn in the road will fork off so keep right. Keep to the main trail, there are numerous lightly traveled trails but you should be able to make out the main trail, as it seems to be fairly well traveled. At about 1 6/10's of a mile you will pass another trail to the right, keep straight. You will want to head toward the power lines.
You will cross under the power lines at 1 8/10's of a mile. Continue on and 1/10 of a mile you will find the grave or memorial on the right (1 9/10)".
