Trail Information


Twisting its way through a rocky and narrow canyon, Orville's Loop is an exhilarating and scenic roller coaster ride through the Sonoran desert. Dense desert vegetation hangs overhead off the tall canyon walls. During winter, water often trickles down the canyon's walls, pooling at the base of the rocky waterfall you will have to climb. The waterfall is Orville's Loop's standout obstacle, a favorite with local crawlers. The climb up the steep and super narrow ledge road provides spectacular panoramas before the trail merges with Jack Handle.

Arizona National Forests and State Lands are back open for travel. There are still some very important fire restrictions in place. These restrictions can often change by specific areas.

Difficulty Accuracy: Spot On

This is a fairly easy trail with the exception of one difficult waterfall obstacle. However, there is bypass to the left of this. It is a moderate bypass with some off camber and is moderately steep. Much easier then the waterfall. UPDATE 5-2-2023: The bypass has become much more difficult with the recent monsoon rains. It is just as difficult as the waterfall.
