Trail Overview

Buckhorn Wash Trail connects Castle Creek Road (Wash) to Bradshaw Mountain Trail, then to Constellation Road (Wickenburg, AZ) Which then offers two choices. Going north leads to the North end of the Box Canyon Hassayampa Wash, while South West leads directly to downtown Wickenburg, AZ. This is a great road to access numerous trails, abandon mines, etc. There are many offshoots with very technical applications. Certainly something for everyone and most AWD/4WD vehicles.
