Meet at 7:30 (depart 7:45) at the Burger King on Power Road just south of Hwy 60 (NE corner of Power Road and Superstition Springs Blvd.).

This trail follows ATV and rugged Jeep roads through a beautiful and narrow canyon with lichen-covered cliffs. In places the canyon narrows to 15’. Eventually, the route climbs to a higher ridge with views of Martinez and Box Canyon. ATV traffic should be minimal on a weekday.

High-clearance vehicles are needed to access the trailhead.

Cost to non-members is $5. Guests and new members should contact the hike leader prior to the hike.
