Trail Overview

The Hassayampa River trail is a wide sandy wash. Great for playing around in the sand, with a lot of smaller shorter trails to explore. You will need an Arizona State Trust Land recreational permit, as a large portion of the land is State Trust land. If you are just passing through and do not stop, you may not need a permit. You can spend one hour, or an entire day out here.Gates will need to be opened and then shut after passing through them. There are free range cows out here as well, so be respectful towards them. Cell phone service is available in some areas.
