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.

South West trail start is blocked by barbed wire fence “private property”. Continue north on South Rincon to next dirt parking and then down to wash.
