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.

Access Description

Accessible from the Lake Pleasant Area. Follow Castle Hot Springs Road to Castel Creek Road which leads you into the wash. Be careful during monsoon season as this wash does flood. This wash is only traveled for less than a mile to reach Buckhorn Wash Trail. This trail is opposite Walker Gulch. From Wickenburg take Constellation Road North East to Bradshaw Mountain Road North until it connects to Buckhorn Wash Trail.
