Well, it's not a groomed dirt road anymore, the summer monsoons have washed the switchbacks and quite a few of the washes out. We went with a group of 4X4 Toyotas and had a blast. Just the right amount of technical with awesome views. The switchbacks put the rigs under some stress as the temps were 105+ but we knew that was a possibility going into it. Lots of cool places to stop and enjoy the scenery, landscape changes galore as you go from low desert to pine. Overall an enjoyable drive and one that would be even better at lower temps. Also, a few places looked like they would be pretty great campsites, not too far from the trail but traffic didn't seem that heavy.

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

This trail is borderline difficult in places due to erosion and exposed bedrock which makes for very slow progress, but scenic views are awesome.

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!!

Took a 2014 sierra with a 6" lift and 35" tires. Lots of different trails to take throwout. Most of the trails are easy, a couple a little more challenging. I ended following the river bottom for a wile and came across a couple really narrow areas but was able to get throw most of them. Eventually there was one i could not get throw cause of really dense bushes and had to turn around. WOULD NOT go too deep into the back trails if your in one vehicle, when i was there i maybe cross one vehicle in a 3 hour period...

Views were beautiful! Will definitely do again! Lots of different trails to explore.

Fun easy ride. I had my 13 year old son driving the trail. This trail has a little bit of everything in it. From hill climbs, to rock crawling. And every skill level imaginable. From super easy, (no four wheel drive needed) to expert (front and rear lockers required). We only spent a couple hours out there and only saw a fraction of the trail. Just watch out for the bulls running around, those guys don't look very friendly.

Couldn't find the trail at first. When we were leaving and loading up, we found a trail that happened to be this specific trail. Don't recommend doing this trail in the hotter months of the valley. There is not a lot of shade cover to get out of the sun. This is more of a winter, cooler months trail.

So much fun! It had just rained and the riverbeds were flowing. Slipped/slid big time into a creek and luckily crawled out at a 50 degree angle. Thought for sure we were gonna tip, but the tundra handled it like a dream. A few great trails up to an overlook and then a lot of mud/water/creeks down at the bottom. Not a ton, but a little bit of broken glass. C'mon peeps. Pick your stuff up - take care of this land!

Bad ass

The Coke Ovens are located on private property and the owner is aggressively protecting his ownership rights. Beware.

I did this trail approx. 15 years ago and it was an actual off road trial. Now it has been groomed and graded and is nothing more than a dirt road. The scenery is nice but it is not as fun of a drive as it used to be

We found the Staging Depot pretty easily, stub led across an old mine, an old rusted out civic about 200-300 yards up. Over great day, beautiful views.

See a piece of AZ history with the ovens. Be respectful of the area and help clean up to keep this gem intact.

Great views throughout the trails and once you go high enough the terrain makes you feel like your up north!

First time jeep ride through this mountain. Amazing 70-degree January day. Saw deer, a road runner, a crested cactus, a cave, a mine, an elephant-trunk-shaped rock formation and a heart rock. Fabulous day with friends

Really great trip especially on an ATV. Try doing the 37 mile loop through Box Canyon. It is worth it!!!!

Awesome trip especially if using an ATV. Try the 37 mile loop through Box Canyon if you can. It is worth 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!!!

One of the best moderate Jeep trails in the area. Combined with the Box Canyon trail and a fun day is guaranteed.
