Big Bug Creek

Big Bug Creek received its name from the large beetles that inhabit its banks during the month of June. In some areas, the ground seems to move. This creek begins just above the Breezy Pines community. The drainage is moist at the high elevations with springs and seeps creating a small flowing creek through Breezy Pines and down the mountains into the old ghost town site, Big Bug. This section is very scenic and beautiful. At this point, it flows intermittently toward the Agua Fria River. See map for flowing areas. Theodore Boggs, great grandson of Daniel Boone, was one of its first miners. Big Bug has old apple and pear orchards along its banks and blackberries throughout most of the upper reaches. Some areas are assessable from the Poland West road.
