Situated at the southern end of the Tonto National Forest and close to a myriad of other OHV trails, Queen Creek Canyon shouldn't be missed. The scenery along this trail is breathtaking! The thrill of riding along the ridgeline and shelf road keeps you holding tightly onto your steering wheel as you look in amazement out the windshield at the mountain peaks and low desert valley in front of you.

Right out of the gate, you are fully immersed in the challenges of this trail. A steep hill descends the mountainside and immediately climbs back out as you go up, over, and around the rugged landscape. The trail peaks at over 5,200 feet, a solid climb from the desert floor.

This trail is less traveled than the three trails that make up the Montana Mountain Loop: Hewitt Canyon Road, Rogers Trough, and Happy Camp Road. With the significant amount of camping in this area, adding Queen Creek Canyon can make for a great weekend trip.
