Trail Information

Highlights

The Wickenburg, Arizona region has a rich history in mining and cattle ranching. Constellation Road, one of the main routes in the region, allows users to easily pass several old mines and a couple working ranches before finally reaching the Hassayampa River Canyon Wilderness Region. The area has many unmarked mines with one of the largest being Monte Cristo Mine where many of its original structures are still standing. The trail ends at the Hassayampa Wilderness Region where there are several miles of great hiking through some beautiful and remote canyons. The region has numerous unmarked "jeep trails" that seem to crisscross everywhere in the desert, with some hiding desert secrets. The trail connects with Corner Spring which joins with Robert's Spring, making for a great all day 4x4 loop.

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.

Due to extremely high fire danger, exceptional drought conditions, resource availability, and increased fire activity, the Department of Forestry and Fire Management and the Arizona State Land Department will implement closures to State Trust Land throughout Arizona. These closures are also in conjunction with our USFS partners. As of 8am on June 25, 2021, closures will be implemented on state-owned and managed lands in all 15 counties. All state-owned and managed lands are closed to entry for recreational purposes, including hunting, camping, and off-road vehicle use. Target shooting and fireworks are prohibited year-round.

The trail rating is very appropriate. The views of the mountains and the views of the abandoned mining sites were well worth the trip. The biggest surprise was the ranch at the end of the trail and the sign-in log for entrance into the wildlife area.
