Fun trail to start with lots of wildlife and breathtaking views. This trail, most likely due to the monsoon season, was incredibly technical with a lot of washouts and sharp rocks.

The issue with this trail is it is not marked and has a lot of intersections with no direction. You WILL need to follow the directions exact or you will find yourself in very dangerous territory quick.

You will drive in a few washes with varying difficulty depending on storms. My recommendation is to drive in, stop at the Gila River to eat lunch and take in the views, and drive back the way you came.

We just finished a portion of the trail - it was really great with spectacular views! Definitely some deep rutted and moderate+ climbs and overall fun! Did not do the entire loop. Went to point 6 and turned around.

Very hard to find the trail because there really is no trail. You just walk through the canyon. To get there, stay on the dirt road for about 4 miles. Once you descend a steep and rocky stretch of dirt road, you will see a 1ft x 1ft white sign. The sign said something like "pack it in, pack it out". Go to the right of this sign. There will be a trail marker about 100 yds down that road. That's where the "trail" starts. There are some points of interests like in the pics. The canyon looks great. We went in December and there wasn't too much water.

I just got back from this trip and need to want people-- it is currently not a "family friendly" moderate route- it is leaning much closer to hard right now. The entire route has been effected by the strong storms AZ has gotten this year and there are many big washouts. Some sections have become fairly technical if you have a stock SUV/Truck. Also, expect to get your sides scratched up on all the brush that has grown into the trails.

Please take care if you do this route! It is also highly recommended you travel with another vehicle-- don't solo this route right now unless you have a well modified rig and a winch! I ended up having to call in a recovery specialist to come winch me out of a big wash between points 1 and 2 on the map. My friend was unable to tow me out of it.

All that said, it is a route with beautiful scenery!
