Great SUV trip to ruins, petroglyphs and suspended foot bridge.

Much of this long trip passes through Agua Fria National Monument. Take time for side trips to see archaeological sites and petroglyphs shown on map. The highest point of the trip nears 5,000 feet, where you’ll enjoy expansive views on a clear day. Unlicensed vehicles are allowed throughout the area. There are natural hot springs hidden in thick brush below and slightly north of the bridge on the west side.


Trail Ratings Defined

A well-maintained road that gets a bit rockier as you descend to the bridge. Wet weather creates muddy conditions, especially on side trips.

Just did this trail last friday. Road is definitely eroded with the rains we have had this winter. We were able to complete the trail in a group that included a 2018 stock 4-runner, a 2018 Taco TRD, and a 2000 Jeep TJ Sport 4.0 with no lockers. Rough ride, higher clearance recommended and 4x4 is a must.
