Trail Overview

This is a beautiful trail in close proximity to Phoenix. It starts in an amazing canyon and eventually climbs up to 5,000 feet where you'll get breathtaking desert and mountain views. ATVs and UTVs can use Hewitt Station Road to complete a loop. There are some great camping spots along the way.

Difficulty

Mostly well-graded road with some embedded rock. F.S. 650 is narrow, steep and sometimes rutted. Stock vehicles with high ground clearance can make it with an experienced driver. Do not attempt if snow or ice are present.
