One of the best hard-core trails in Arizona when water flows.

This trail has changed somewhat in recent years due to fire and flood damage, but it still remains one of the best hard-core trails in the state, especially when Canada Del Oro Wash is flowing. The most difficult obstacle, “The Step,” is located on a side loop and is entirely optional. Very difficult for ATVs and UTVs, especially during times of high water. A big thanks to the Tucson Rough Riders for adopting this trail and keeping it open.


Trail Ratings Defined

Long and remote with challenging obstacles and potentially deep water crossings. Very steep in places with loose rock. Route-finding can be challenging, even with GPS. Not for stock SUVs. Go with a group and be prepared for breakdowns.
