Overview

Climbs remote, scenic mountain.

This scenic trail is a quick drive from Phoenix. You’ll pass through a beautiful canyon, then climb above 5,000 feet to panoramic desert and mountain views. Route takes you to several hiking trail heads into Superstition Wilderness. Use Hewitt Station Road to make a loop for ATVs and UTVs. Plenty of room for staging at both ends of loop. Many great dispersed camp spots along the route.

Trail Ratings Defined

Mostly well-graded road with some embedded rock. F.S. 650 is narrow, steep and sometimes rutted. Stock vehicles with high ground clearance can make it with an experienced driver. Do not attempt if snow or ice are present.

This trail has gotten a little tougher, so we’ll be upping the rating from easy to moderate. I drove the trail on March 14 and ran into about a foot of snow at Waypoint 03. I was forced to turn back along with many UTVs. I went back two weeks later and got through with no problems. With all that melting snow and rain the trail was gorgeous with lots of wildflowers and a lot of water flowing in the normally dry washes. There are many OHV trails inside the Montana Mountain loop and this area has become a very popular OHV area complete with developed staging areas and good signage. Hewitt Station Road is now permanently closed between Waypoints 6 and 1, but bypass trails are shown on posted maps.

Great trail. Only issue is at the end, in order to get back to your truck you will need to go onto highway 60. Hewett Station Road is now closed to through traffic.
