Vekol Valley Road, BLM trail 8007, takes you from Interstate 8 deep into the Sonoran Desert National Monument to its southern boundary. The trail is graded gravel with multiple wash crossings easily done in 2WD. The final 4 miles of the trail require 4WD. It runs through low ground and a wash that can become very muddy after a summer monsoon rain. Vekol Valley Road officially ends at the southern boundary of the monument where it borders the Tohono O’odham Nation. . The Sonoran Desert National Monument spans over 486,000 acres and has many opportunities to observe wildlife, view historical sites, and take in the true wilderness of the Sonoran Desert. This remote and less traveled trail will immerse you in the Arizona desert.
