This is a very popular area for both licensed and unlicensed vehicles. You’ll find a variety of terrain with many side trails to explore in addition to a massive staging area with plenty of flat space for motor homes and large camping units. Route shown here follows a wide wash, interrupted by various size rock obstacles. Don’t miss the side trip to interesting Rovey’s Needle.

We could make a case for upping the rating on this trail because some of the rock sections along the last part are a bit more exposed. But it’s so close; we’ll leave the rating at moderate. The worst spot has a bypass, but other spots are a bit more difficult. A skilled driver in a high-clearance vehicle like my stock Wrangler Sport will have no problems. I took a different winding route along the hillside to get to Rovey’s Needle (shown in the book with a brown line and an ATV symbol.) It was very steep in spots but really fun in my Jeep. You can’t get a good photo of Rovey’s Needle that shows how cool it is. Make sure you go up there. Also, I found a hiking trail at the end of the trail (Wpt. 07) that avoids the thick brush to the river. Follow a path to the right that tunnels through the brush then comes out and climbs to the top of a hill. From there you get a great view of the mouth of Bill Williams River.
