Moderately challenge scenic loop for stock SUVs A photographer's dream. Beautiful Sonoran Desert with towering red buttes on all sides of the trail. A fun drive offering real adventure. Hike into the nearby White Canyon Wilderness area north of the trail. A small part of this trail crosses State Trust Land so it's best to have a State Trust Land permit. For information call 602-364-2753. This is also a popular ATV area. Stay on existing trails at all times. Rating: Moderate. Winding, rutted road with moderate climbs and descents. Narrow in a few places. Our group drove the trail following a period of torrential rains. Several places were badly washed out, which required some rock-stacking for several stock vehicles in our group. While the road is well defined most of the way, one section crosses a low sandy area along the Gila River. Skid plates and high ground clearance recommended for stock vehicles. Brush may lightly touch your vehicle.
