Monolith Garden is a fantastic maze of towering rock formation on the outskirts of Kingman. Operated by the BLM as a multi use facility it a delight to use the beautiful network of trails. It has a rolling landscape of low hills, stacked rock towers and hunched ridgeline columns.
The scenic and surprisingly fun area is popular with hikers, non-motorized mountain bikers, and horses share the trails through dramatic boulder fields and crumbling ramparts of volcanic ash. The views are amazing.
There are three way you can access the area. You can start at the Camp Beale Loop trailhead, and pass through a wash that goes under Hwy 93. Go past the cattle fences, and be sure to put them back in place.
There is another that you can access from east bound on Hwy 93. The easiest trailhead to reach is on Metwell Drive. From Interstate 40 in Kingman, go north on U.S. 93. After about 0.5 mile, turn left on Metwell.
The third way is to be headed into Kingman on Hwy 93 and use the access on the south side of the road.
Admission is free, the scenery is wonderful. Shade is elusive, watch for rattlesnakes, and carry plenty of water. This is open range country so don't be surprised if you see cattle.
