Trail Overview

This wide, well-maintained, gravel road winds through the spectacular CO Bar Ranch/Arizona Land Trust co-managed area. Along the way, you'll drive past SP Mountain and through the lava field that can be seen on the satellite map. You'll need a free ranch access permit which can be obtained online or at the well-marked kiosk located along the road. You will also need an Arizona Land Trust permit if you plan to do more than drive the road. There is no off-road driving permitted but there are a number of forest roads to explore that lead to all sorts of interesting ranch pens, tanks, and even an old homestead!

Difficulty

This is a graded, well-maintained, two-lane gravel road. There are no obstacles and it is suitable for any street-legal vehicle.

History

This historic ranch is still inhabited today. You'll find two current homesteads and one abandoned homestead on the ranch. Please respect private property, close any gate that isn't fixed open, and leave no trace!
