Trail Overview

This route takes you through many abandoned ghost mines as it winds and twists through the Bradshaw Mountains and ends at the historic Bradshaw Grave. From sandy washes to gravel/rock terrain mountain sides, short-wheelbase vehicles will enjoy this trail's technical aspects. However, the long-wheelbase pickups will have trouble negotiating the turns and climbs, and AZ pinstriping. Views are plentiful but the purpose of this trail is the technical rating.

Difficulty

These are primitive trails that change after every monsoon storm. Rock sliders are a must for this trail as is a lift and no less that 33" tires.

We started from the south heading Northeast on Constellation Rd to Sidewinder Trl. The difficult section doesn't start until Amazon Gulch. Some steep rocky sections. Rate it a good 6. We crossed off this trail on a fairly easy section to Castle Crk Rd. which got pretty hard cutting back south but doable.
