Highlight: Arch Canyon Escape
The BLM-administered areas of the Quebradas have 4WD trails ranging in difficulty from "mild to wild." A popular destination for offroad enthusiasts, one can easily plan a full day or multiple days of wheeling in this area part of the 6,000-acre Gordy’s Hill Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Area. Arch Canyon Escape allows a less extreme route to the top of one area's most extreme buggy trails, Arch Canyon, home of a natural stone arch that sits atop the canyon's east wall. Enjoy lunch in the shade of the tall canyon walls, start a hike down into the canyon, or set up a super-secluded campsite for the night. Getting to this trail takes you well into the ruggedly beautiful badlands of the Quebradas. Other, more difficult trails must be traversed to reach this trail, so be sure to check the ratings and vehicle recommendations on those by using the Nearby Trails tab on the map above.
