A few weeks ago we explored the 14-mile-long White Canyon Trail in the White Canyon Wilderness near Superior, AZ. The scenery along this 4×4 trail is pretty spectacular. In fact it was so stunning I lost track of how many times I said, “wow!” The dirt road leading to the trail, called Battle Axe Road, is unmarked, so finding the turnoff can be a little tricky. The entrance is on Arizona-177 .9 miles south of mile marker 159 on the west side of the highway. The main part of the trail basically follows a large wash which cuts through the center of the canyon. Being in a wash, of course, results in a road surface composed of loose sand and littered with large and small boulders. In some parts, the trail narrows quite a bit by encroaching trees and bushes. We had to do a lot of cutting and trimming in places to allow our rig to pass without getting scratched up. Still, we had a great time and will be back again in the Spring when the wild flowers are in full bloom. Look for a detailed report on the White Canyon Trail later this Spring. In the meantime, enjoy a few pics.
