Highlight: Sandy Banks
Located within the Arizona Strip region of northwest Arizona, there is a very unique canyon that winds its way through narrow and vertical sand cliffs. Sandy Banks is one of the more challenging ways to reach the Three Corners Monument which marks the meeting point for the Arizona, Nevada and Utah state lines. The trail offers some mild challenges for stock type off-road vehicles while making you hold your breath, hoping the walls won't come crashing down. The trail starts off as a wide sandy wash before it quickly becomes very narrow, with walls as tall as 50 feet above your head. You'll wind your way through the sandy cliffs, up and over dirt mounds before coming out to the flat desert at the end. Be prepared for this one because it changes after every rainstorm.
