    :

    : It's over a year after your posting, but ... Trench Camp is the site of a reclaimed zinc & lead mine owned and operated by Asarco. The buildings are gone, though some foundations remain. Asarco leveled, capped, and vegetated the waste piles, and is experimenting with using artificial wetlands for treatment of acidic mine drainage. The site is privately owned (by Asarco), but is roughly bisected by an US Forest Service Road. The road is signed as "Flux Canyon Road" at the junction with Harshaw Road. Harshaw road is a good gravel road, but Flux Canyon Rd. requires a high clearance vehicle at any time, and 4-wheel drive during wet periods.

    : The Coronado National Forest HQ in Tucson can probably provide more info about access. Asarco used to have a web page devoted to Trench Camp, but I haven't been able to find it lately.
