St. David Pits

Tuesday, July 29, 2014
Alt Names Dump Hill, St. David Playground, Saint David, The Playground, Lonesome Valley, Saint David Pits, The Wash, The Pits
Last Known Status Open
DESCRIPTION

Located just outside of St. David, this play pit area offers various jumps and turns in a small but very unique looking canyon. The area gets very dusty, and there are no services here and no fees, but the locals are friendly and scenery is very cool as the pictures show. There is also a large sand wash that runs through town and out to the hills that makes for a fun ride. The nearby city of Tombstone is also a major attraction.
