If you don't know what i am talking about...
Poland - Arizona Ghost Town ( Warning:Banjo music )

I would like to take pics of the entrance on the Poland side. I was up there recently, and there was a rough road that seemed to go toward the entrance, but i didn't want to trespass on private property. The road had no signage or gating, but did have what seemed to be an empty sign box. Anyone know if this is private property or what?

Also...i have seen many pics of the Poland entrance, but what about the Walker side? Not much info seems to exist on it.

Go to Yavapai County Official Website and click on "GIS Mapping", then click on "ADVANCED CUSTOMIZABLE MAP". Click in on the exact area, using road names. When you recognize the spot, click on the lower case letter i on the left hand bar. Then a click will bring up the owner of the property.

If you click on "Map Layers" on the upper right, then "Aerial Images", then "Digital Globe", you will have a satellite view of the area, and might see the rough road you describe.

Zoom controls upper left.

First off....awesome link! Much thanks!

The Poland-Walker tunnel is accessible, but you'll need scuba gear to go through it. Theres a short train tunnel just down the road that's pretty neat too which is dry so you can walk through it.

Thanks. I knew it was flooded...but i am not really interested in going in it...just to snap a few pics of the entrance. I actually snapped some pics of the train tunnel you mentioned the day i was up there.

Do you know anything about the Walker side?

From what I heard the tunnels were sealed off by the forest service to prevent people from venturing into them. The only way of really finding out is to drive out and see it for yourself.

Used to be accessible by going the Breezy Pines Route and the tunnel is located on a bend on that road either right before or after Breezy Pines. It's been a while since I was there but I am pretty sure it is still there. The far portion of it has caved in (either naturally or intentionally) and there is a lot of trash from people having parties--kind of sad.
