RECENTLY CLOSED TO MOTOR VEHICLES AFTER POINT #8 IMPORTANT NOTICE: This trail has been closed after the turn for the Coke Ovens at Point #8. It is now necessary to hike in about 1.6 miles to the start of the loop. Absolutely stunning scenery, including remarkably intact Martinez Mill. This is an environmentally sensitive area; stay on the trail at all times. Open all year except a few weeks a year when military training exercises are in progress. Dates of closure are posted at the main entrance at Cottonwood Canyon Road and Mineral Mountain Road. The area is closed if red flags are flying. A State Trust Land permit is required to ride in this area. Call 602-364-2753 for details. Rating: Difficult and dangerous. Extremely steep with technically challenging rock obstacles. The most dangerous part, called "The Luge," is akin to driving off a cliff. This trail is for experts only. Turn around at the top of the loop to avoid "The Luge." Stock SUVs can make it to the top of the #7 Scenic High Point.

Great side trip to get off the more heavily traveled trails while in the Box Canyon, Middle Gila Canyons area. Unbeatable scenery. Trail is closed to vehicle's approximately 1.7 mi from the old Martinez Mill and mine. The hike to these historic relics is well worth the effort. Trail follows the wash and I would rate as easy.
