The views on this road are hard to compete with anywhere in AZ. The road is well maintained, moderately traveled and filled with so many variations of scenery, its awesome. You can travel this in a car easily and the windy sections are quite fun.

This is an amazing trail for the scenery. Not difficult at all. Never put the rig into 4 wheel drive. Nice, cool, getaway. Some really nice spots to take pics as we. Totally recomment.

Vehicle was Ford Raptor SuperCrew.
Some switchbacks took a bit of negotiating. Due to brush alongside trail there was some scratching but light.

Definitely a nice drive for sure. Been down this road many times thru the years. Whether it's from I-10, or the cutoff to Corona, or coming over Box canyon. It's a nice drive from any of those spots. The Sonoita side is so much different from the Santa Cruz valley. Like night and day. Cactus and mesquites on the Santa Cruz side and oaks and grass lands on the Sonoita side. Sonoita southwest to Nogales is an equally nice drive too. Worth your time to do a nice loop along here.

This drive is along a major highway, so as others say, it’s close to impossible to stop or even see much, especially if you’re driving. However, half way through there is an exit for Virgin River Canyon Campground. I think this is BLM land. You can pay a small fee for day use or overnight camping if spots are available. There are a few trails to walk here, several go to the river. Seeing the view from the car is one thing, but I had the opportunity to see it from a bus window as well, so I could also see into the canyon from that height. That was fun.
