Puerto Blanco Road lies along the U.S. and Mexico border, a maintained road within Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument. It is an excellent trail for beginners to get their feet wet with off-road driving. Along the way, you will experience cacti of all shapes and sizes and a brief detour down to the border wall to visit Quitobaquito Springs, a naturally flowing spring providing water to the fauna of this area. Any AWD or stock 4WD vehicle will have no problems with this trail. There is no camping along this road as you are in OPCNM. Due to the proximity to the border of Mexico, it's not uncommon to see Border Patrol. If you run this trail clockwise, you will have to return the way you came as Puerto Blanco Road (north) is one-way only, so if you want the whole experience of Puerto Blanco Road (both north and south), make sure you run it counter-clockwise!
