Sonoran Desert National Monument (SDNM) trail 8016 creates a nice loop when connected with 8011 and 8008.s here. Primarily a gravel surface with a few sandy wash crossings, it's less traveled than other trails in the area. You may add additional pinstripes to your vehicle due to the tight brush and overgrowth. There are limited camping locations on this trail, but a few flat spots are available.
This entire trail requires a Barry M. Goldwater Range permit. Please refer to the permit required link above. The permit is only available online and requires viewing a mandatory safety video. A printed copy of your permit must be carried with you while on this trail. SDNM 8016 runs through a very remote area of the Sonoran Desert. Please take all necessary precautions.
