Audrey Headframe Park

  The headframe is located west of Jerome State Park and is not part of the park so there isn’t an admission charge. The headframe was used to lift copper ore from the 1900’ deep shaft of the Little Daisy Mine. The shaft is covered with a thick piece of glass so it’s possible to stand on the glass and look down the shaft. A man cage and other mining equipment is also on display.

  Large, loose gravel makes rolling around very difficult. A short steep ramp provides access to the glass covering the shaft.

The parking lot is large enough for RVs.
