Trail Overview

Copper Canyon bypasses interstate traffic and provides an escape from the heat. Making its way from Camp Verde to Cherry Road, this trail climbs more than 1,500 feet. Water flows on the lower half of the trail during parts of the year, so be sure to use caution. Take care to shut gates behind you as you travel along the trail.

Difficulty

Copper Canyon has several rocky climbs that change every time it rains, giving way to ledges over 24" tall and deep cross-axle washouts. If water is present, drivers should approach any water crossings with caution.

I run an 86 lifted Ford ranger 4x4 and I recommend bringing a spotter along. there are 4 bad areas. I made it ok and any danger was to the truck, not me. Really a pretty area but I was glad it was over. I guess I should say I'm not an experienced rock crawler and thought about turning around more then once.
