Overview

Driving up and over the impressive and saguaro-filled Gila Bend Mountains, the landscape turns sparse and barren. In this naked landscape resides Saddle Potholes which is a rock formation along an unnamed wash that naturally collects water. Some time ago, a small dam was constructed to increase the water collection for grazing and homesteaders. This dam remains today, and this off-road trail will make for an excellent trail to include for a day-long trip or a multi-day overlanding trip.
