Canal Road begins off the paved Aguila Road. It runs parallel to a major powerline and the Central Arizona Project Canal, which moves water from the Colorado River to Arizona's major cities. Canal Road is a convenient entry point for exploring the ruggedly scenic Belmont Mountains. Canal Road connects with Vulture Mine Road and W. W. Enterprize Mine. The trail is relatively easy, with one hill climb with an 18-degree maximum grade.

Several large flat campsites near the east end of the trail are suitable for large groups and toy haulers.
