Trail Overview

At the northern end, the trail is primarily deep rocky ruts in the corners with a few sections of slick rock, followed by the occasional rocky ledge. There is a cattle gate you'll need to keep shut, and the trees are narrow. The trail provides excellent access to Hudson Point and Last Chance Canyon. Both are beautiful trails where you can get some fantastic views and a little technical riding. From the viewpoint intersection, the trail heading north is generally about the same. There are lots of rocks and boulders in the trail, some loose rocky hill climbs and descents, and deeply rutted corners. The trail passes through dense juniper tree forests, and there are quite a lot of pheasants getting flushed out as you move along. Also, the buzzard populations appear relatively healthy based on all the ones circling overhead. This is a great trail to connect to the Rattlesnake Canyon Trail. This area is very remote, and help is a long way away. Be sure to bring a satellite communication device and be sure somebody knows your travel plans. There is no cell service out here, so plan and download your offline maps and bring plenty of water. It is a desert, after all.

There are a few small ledges, loose rocky hill climbs and descents, and deeply rutted corners. Watch for downed trees and low-hanging branches.


The Arizona Strip is a vast arid region on the north side of the Grand Canyon that encompasses a variety of landscapes and climates within its nearly 3 million acres, as well as centuries of human history. It is 200 miles long and accessed only by two major highways on either end. Because of its lack of easy access, the Strip remains one of the most remote and least-visited parts of the state.
