one of the best places I've been to! great community of people that go always ready to help you when you get stuck enough space for the kids to get wet without being in the way of the vehicles passing, if you want to get a good spot with shade on weekend you will have to go friday and camp because if you don't somebody will especially holidays, 4x4 is absolutely necessary and a lifted vehicle would be best

Fun little run. Very easy. 4x4 not required to play. You have to go out of the way to go over anything bigger than 6-12" a few fun little spots for jeeps

Love the water forging over sand. The box canyon is beautiful! Be cautious, depending on the season the water can get deep. Recommend traveling with another vehicle during high water seasons. I've pulled out multiple 2wd pick-ups. There is a fun little sand camping spot up the canyon with a small slit canyon to take pics.

To get here, start in Wickenburg and proceed north on US-93. Take a right onto Scenic Loop Road, about a mile north of the stoplight at Vulture Mine Road, and follow the road about 7.4 miles--there is a pullout and parking area on the right. There is no signage; you can either walk down into the canyon from here or drive down with a 4wd. The "loop" is actually much more confusing than it's worth; most people go up the canyon or down the canyon, and retrace and exit where you came in. The box canyon that gives the area its name is on the right, just a couple hundred yards downriver. This is one of the few places you will actually see surface water on the Hassayampa, and it is a nice area as long as it's not too crowded.
