Box Canyon is an Arizona four wheelers hidden oasis. It offers a unique four wheeling experience by allowing users to drive through a wet and sandy cliff-lined canyon. Most times of the year there is just enough water to allow you to splash your way through the canyon. You can also explore some of the side trails or hang out under one of the several giant shade trees. The Hassayampa River flows mostly underground, it starts at the Bradshaw Mountains and continues through Wickenburg, Arizona. Depending on the day and recent rainfall, the water depth typically ranges from non-existent to 15" deep (sometimes even deeper). Make sure to take the short detour to the hidden trail in at waypoint 5.
The trail begins at a large dirt staging area overlooking the large sandy wash below. The trail leads north down to the wash. It's highly recommended you air down for improved traction in the loose sand. Four-wheel drive is mandatory for traveling beyond this point.
Starting Point: Wickenburg, Arizona - Hwy 60 and Hwy 93
