Overview

Scenic drive with a short hike to Hummingbird Springs.

The middle portion of this route follows a wilderness corridor between two wilderness areas. Stay on numbered routes at all times. We drove this trail in March when a red grass, which locals called Indian Wheat, dominated the landscape. This color, combined with saguaro cactus, teddy-bear cholla, blooming ocotillo and mountain backdrops, made for a very scenic trip. Short hike to Hummingbird Springs was fun even though we found no water or hummingbirds. Open to properly registered and plated OHVs.

Start and end of trip were flat and easy. Center portion, between wilderness areas, was very twisty with short, steep climbs across many dry washes. Suitable for stock, high-clearance 4x4 SUVs and pickup trucks.

ANEURIN R SHOEMAKER says

This run was a great time great Scenic views. We started at Sunrise and finished shortly before 1 in the afternoon at I-10 exit 94. Making little stops along the way including the hike to Hummingbird Springs. Just like the book says no hummingbirds no water. Still worth the hike not that bad of a hike. This was the end of December 2020. The book says okay for trucks and SUVs, their truck was a Toyota Tacoma. I took an 2019 FX-4 F-150 stock yes the passenger tire stock. There were spots in the middle that could be considered moderate. But doable, I was able to get them done with my full size truck in 4-wheel drive. The only bad part of the trail was the narrowness of the road for a full size truck. So, if you don't want your full size truck Arizona pinstripe this may not be the run for you. I'll tell you the truth, about the Arizona pinstripe after the first few sets they don't hurt as much.
