Awesome views and wildlife. Saw a couple of big horn sheep including one on the canyon floor. It was a bit busy on the weekend though. Map shows incorrect path. At the first RR crossing there is a locked gate. Be sure to follow the signs for price rd (rt turn) before you see the cattle on the left. It will take you straight to the canyon.

Fun trail lots of good scenery saw several big horn sheep. Not to difficult, stock Jeep can complete entire trail. Recommend doing it in cooler months so can enjoy with windows down.

Box Canyon is amazing!! It has some difficult places, but we had no problem in a four wheel jeep. Others did fine in Razors and Four Wheelers. Come back the same way you came in, unless you have LOTS of hours of daylight to find you way past there. We have not, as yet. Today, we went way up Sandman Road, off of Price Road, in hopes of hitting & turning right Cottonwood Canyon Road, and coming through to Box Canyon. In spite of what the map says, Sandman does NOT go through!! It is barricaded at The Gravel Express pit!! And there is a locked gate on Sandman, on the other side of the pit! Take our word for it!!

Love this trail. The canyon is beyond amazing. Great entrance up to the coke ovens, and the Gila river. Just don't get too cocky during your water crossing and drown your rig like I did!! Can't wait to go back!!!
