Santa Maria River Road passes primarily through Arizona State Trust Land and occasionally crosses over private ranches and BLM land. The trail is a mix of packed dirt, gravel, and sand. High clearance is needed to get through some of the washes and one small rocky climb on the trail's eastern end. This trail sees significant erosion when it rains. It is not recommended to travel this road when the possibility of flooding exists. Nice views of Thorn Peak, Whitecap Peak, and Crosby Mountain are prevalent throughout the trail run. One camping area is large enough to accommodate many vehicles. It also had a rock fire ring. The area has nice views of the surrounding mountain ranges.
