Overview

If backcountry desert adventure is your thing, then Rincon Road may be just what you're looking for. It's a little known route that connects two rugged but beautiful desert regions. While on the route you'll parallel The Rincon, a cove of mountains to the north and the lush Gila River Valley to the south. When this trail is coupled with Walnut Canyon, Martinez Canyon Road and Box Canyon you are guaranteed to have an incredible off-road experience. Rincon Road was used in the late 1800's into the 1950's for accessing the numerous mining operations in the area but has since had a rebirth in offering access to rugged desert for OHV users, hikers and rock climbers. The region is littered with side trails and canyons offering a life time of exploration. This is a remote and seldom run trail, so please be over prepared for anything that can happen. Enjoy responsibly and remember to always carry out more then you bring in.
