Palm Canyon leads off Highway 95 into the vast Kofa National Wildlife Refuge to a difficult hike into the only place in Arizona where native California palm trees grow in their natural habitat. The road is well maintained and a very popular area for boondockers during the mild Arizona Winter. While there's no shade, there is plenty of level ground to support any type of rig for a few pleasant nights under the stars. One of the most popular offroad trails in the Refuge, Kofa Queen Canyon, branches off the road into a picturesque canyon. With plenty of time on their hands, some campers created a perfect spiral of rocks visible by satellites. Check out these coordinates, 33.373263, -114.173820, on Google Earth!
