Browns Crossing was the area's most reliable way across the river before the Bill Williams River was dammed in 1968 to create Alamo Lake. The dam flooded the crossing. Today, Browns Crossing is a spur off the Wickenburg Alamo Road used primarily for camping. Numerous campsites are located along the trail or down spurs. Many have lake views. A small campsite is on the edge of the lake at the end of the trail. The Artillery Mountains and Artillery Peak dominate the skyline when driving northwest along the trail.

The only obstacle along the trail is sand found in a wash crossing near the trail's end. A 2WD vehicle can manage the trail.
