Welcome To YoungAZ.com
Young, Arizona is located in the heart of Pleasant Valley and Gila County, about 120 miles northeast of Phoenix. Arizona's best kept secret. Untouched and unspoiled. The true wild, wild west.
Step back in time. Electricity didn't arrive until 1965 and there was no cellular service until 2009. Even today, there are no fast food restaurants or well known chain stores. Progress in Pleasant Valley moves very slowly.
There are no strangers in Young, only welcomed guests. As you travel through town, prepare to be greeted often by a pleasant wave and a friendly smile.
Enjoy a two and one-half hour drive from the Phoenix/Mesa area or fly in to the local airport affectionately known as "Young International Airport". Of course, you won't find any jet planes landing here, the pace of life is just too slow!
Once you arrive, be sure to relax and enjoy a bite to eat. Plan to stay over? Check in at the local motel or rent a cabin in the woods.
We'd love to meet you, so please do plan to visit soon. In the meantime, enjoy browsing our website. It's our home on the net and we've opened our doors to you!

Desert Adventures - Vail, AZ
ATV AND SILVER MINE TOURS IN VAIL, ARIZONA - Are You Ready for a Desert Adventure? We use a rope to lower ourselves down a decline mine shaft (very safe) to the 125' level called the "Blue Room" because the walls are blue from natural mineralization. You can find an area you like to hammer and chisel minerals or ore off the walls. This mine is very unique for many reasons. One is that many of the ceilings are natural caverns. When finished collecting your specimens, we will walk out a horizontal shaft to the outside, and climb back up to the top where we started. While other mines and caverns tell you "Do not touch the walls", I want you to touch the walls and ceilings with a hammer and chisel, so you can take home beautiful minerals along with silver ore. Most Arizonans don't realize that 300 million years ago, the state of Arizona was at the bottom of a sea. You may find fossils with sea creatures, trilobites and such which have been extinct for over 300 million years.
ATV Tours - If you are only taking the ATV tour, we will also start at 8:30am, unless you have certain time constraints. After you sign a safety waiver, I’ll go over the safety and operational factors about the ATVs you will be riding. All ATVs are fueled up and checked out before each tour and heading out into the high desert. While traveling along the road getting out to the old mining sites, just look around at the mountain tops and you can easily imagine that there will be dinosaurs around the next corner. A more vivid imagination, you may think there is an Apache war party in the hills. As a matter of fact, back in 1876, an Apache war party killed 6 Mexican workers who were cutting firewood to bring back to the old hammer mill at the mining site. This truly is the Wild West.
