A must do if you’re in the area

Definitely a trail to do in early am at low temperatures. The views are stunning on both sides of the hike. Do 106-105a-105.
It’s definitely more that a moderate hike!

Very scenic road going either direction. I would not recommend driving anything but a higher clearance vehicle on this road. 4x4 is not exactly necessary. It gets bumpier all the time and the Jeep tour operators want it that way. It's their bread and butter to have it this way to thrill the tourists. I did take a little Honda Grom outfitted with knobby tires up and down this road and the Pink Jeep Tour guides were going nuts taking pictures and calling me their hero. It's rough as heck in some places but definitely doable. Leave the Prius home if you are wanting to go up/down Schnebly. Sure you could make it, I guess, but your little car will not be the same as when you started. Do yourself a favor and get some exercise by hiking up Mund's Wagon Trail to see Schnebly in all its glory.

The road leading to the trail head was closed off for some reason but the road itself is only about a mile long and flat so we just hoofed it. Other than that the trail itself was very nice. Nobody else was on the trail at all and the views were amazing.

Great day drive. I took my xv crosstrek through all the way, a few big pot holes and rough parts but nothing crazy. Next time I'll put better shocks in before I as I bottomed out a couple times, but otherwise it was great. beautiful view of the backside when you get to the top. Bring your camera.

did not due entire loop, but made it up the river bed. did run into some water, but with bypasses was able to get a stock Isuzu hombre 2.2l with good tires to the end of the of the water. really enjoyed it.

After reading other reviews I decided to do this Trail counterclockwise which is harder. If you want a more gradual incline, go clockwise.

There were times the trail was too narrow and it’s rocky throughout. I hate the small rocks since I tend to slide easily especially downhill. So the beginning was definitely like that.

I see where complaints of overgrown areas were valid but it wasn’t too bad since it’s spring. But overall this trail could use some maintenance because you want to be able to see where you walk (potential snakes). I’m glad I brought my hiking sticks.

Scenery was better than expected and shade was less than I expected. So wear sunscreen or sun hat.

Overall not a bad hike but not a repeat trail for me.

There is no parking, no signs, no bathrooms, and it’s very easy to get lost even with a GPS. It was not a good hike. In addition we never saw Box Canyon. We had to turn around about 2 miles before we got to the other side of the loop because the trail ended. Nowhere on the trail is any signage. I would not recommend to hike there. Off-roading would be okay , but not hiking.

Mostly a dirt road. This is a scenic historic drive best done in a high clearance vehicle. Four wheel drive is not required. The route crosses desert and grass lands leading to a low mountain pass of oaks, pinyon pine and juniper trees between Tombstone and Sulphur Springs Valley in the Dragoon mountains. An area used by Cochise, leader of the Chiricahua Apache. Parts of the route were also used by the US Cavalry between Fort Bowie and the San Pedro Valley.

Interesting hike where the river winds through a box canyon with water running despite hot and dry temps. Changes around every corner. Easy walking.

Can four wheel and shoot. Enjoy the wilderness and have fun!

Go in Arizona's short spring season, early in the morning. Everything's in bloom!

Hard at times, very rocky section next to the mine.

Great ride. first part is easy then leads into Rocky trail. we used quads and got through. The 2 TRX 400's bottomed out through the rockest areas. The other utility quads our buddies used where fine. the 4×4's behind us had to stack rocks to get through. lots of traffic, watch corners for on coming traffic. This ride is a must.

Decent place to go for an off road adventure - but there are much better and scenic drives to take

Great views of the lake. Wish you could get up to the actual “4 peaks”

This was an amazing drive especially when you get off the paved road. I would definitely recommend

We couldn’t find this trail..or any trail near this mountain

Awesome day. We did this on Easter Sunday. Wife and son took stock '18 JL Sport. Did a couple of the obstacles. However, we did get stuck about 22-24 miles in going up the path and we really thought we were going to have to back down and turn around. Large rock in the middle of road. Got it stuck pretty bad at one point, but was able to get unstuck. Did a LOT of rock stacking and got up and over, after that no problems. About 2-3 miles before that there was a 2WD Tundra completely stuck on his rear differential. Had to jack him up and put rocks under to get him clear. I would not do this again stock, but we'll be getting a lift in the next few weeks and we'll be out there to do it again. Great drive!!

My wife and I took my stock Chevy 1500 crew cab on this trail. It was a ruff ride for my wife. I had a blast. The bumps and beautiful views were well worth it. We turned back after 5 miles.

Beautiful pine country. Recovering from fire damage in some areas, but still a gorgeous view. My Backroad Song!

We came to see the Box Canyon. Don’t take the loop on the map!! Continue up the riverbed into a beautiful canyon with lots of shallow water crossings. Be sure to park and check out the little side canyon on the left. Next time I will record the route and go farther up. If expecting rain don’t go. 4x4 advised.

Best memory there simply walk along the trail and enjoy the beauty of nature.

Beautiful scenic drive through some stunning rock formations and great views of the park.

Great trail with views. Road leading up to trailhead was closed which added another mile (one way) to the hike. No trail markers but the trail is clearly visible.

Very cool place, give yourself plenty of time. We could only do half the park, going southwest to northeast. The park does close at night and if you think you can steal any wood, good luck, they have search stations at the gates.

Lots of trails but please take out what you bring in and help protect this land.

Absolutely love this park. It’s mostly just drive, stop, look at something amazing and go back to your car. At the most a 1.5 miles hike on pavement. Easy for all levels. Stunning colors, amazing photo ops.
