A good trail for novice drivers seeking 4×4 adventure. By our standards, it’s easy, but don’t take it too lightly. It’s very remote and rough in places. Bullet-riddled junk cars along the route should be a warning to not drive this one alone. Much of the route crosses ranchland, but the middle portion passes through Coronado National Forest and climbs over the lower end of the Santa Rita Mountains to just above 5,000 feet. You’ll see a few mines, but most are just tailings. Interesting adobe ruins at Alto Camp. Lesser roads branch off, which makes it fun for ATVs and UTVs. MVUM is available.

When running this trail you will find that the creek crossing at mile 22.6 is closed on both sides with locked gates. The trail can be completed by staying left on Blue Haven road which goes into Patagonia.
