Vehicle Types


More fun when water is flowing through the canyon.

A chance to splash in a desert river. The trail follows the Hassayampa River, most often shallow water or just a dry river bed. Tall red rock canyon walls provide welcome shade during the hot summer. You have two chances to exit the trail via Rincon Road; however, the riverbed is much more scenic. Fun side trips for ATVs and UTVs.


Trail Ratings Defined

Trail is mostly soft sand with occasional wet sections. Air down tires for better traction or follow existing tracks. Flash flooding is possible following heavy rains. Suitable for stock high-clearance 4WD SUVs.

The original trail that approaches Box Canyon Wickenburg crosses private property. Individuals stage in the river along Rincon Road. The landowners are asking that Box Canyon visitors travel 1/4 Mile up the road away from private property to Stage their vehicle. Please reroute your Trail to avoid traveling the river through private property.
