Trail Overview

This trail will take you along the Hassayampa River. Often, the river is dry or shallow. There are some great shady spots provided by beautiful redrock walls. You can get off the trail on Rincon Road, but the river is way more fun and scenic. There are some fun side trips available for ATVs and UTVs.

Difficulty

Easy: Trail is mostly soft sand with occasional wet sections. Air down tires for better traction or follow existing tracks. Flash flooding is possible following heavy rains. Suitable for stock high-clearance 4WD SUVs.
