Cottonwood Canyon Road begins as a paved county road before turning into a grated gravel trail. The higher you climb into the pines, the steeper and more narrow the trail becomes. The trail has a couple of very nice old drill platforms that have been converted into large group camping areas. These sites are ideal for RVs or campers needing solid and level ground to park. As you climb, the landscape transforms from rugged desert rocks to dense pine and aspen forests. The trail is easily completed in 2WD vehicles equipped with durable tires.
