Cottonwood Canyon Road serves as one of, if not the main entrance to, the famous Florence OHV area. This rugged region is littered with old mines, wagon stops, petroglyphs, and beautiful Sonoran Desert landscapes. During the busy winter months, the early portion of the route is considered the boondockers midway. Countless RVs and large family groups line the well-maintained gravel road. The fun begins once you pass all the traffic. The trail travels through a rocky wash before climbing into the southern foothills of the Superstition Mountains with spectacular panoramas of the surrounding Sonoran Desert. Cottonwood Canyon Road ends at 5 Points, the central hub of the region's trail network. You can choose from various routes, like rock crawling on the Ajax Mine trail for lunch at the ruins or continuing south through the beautiful narrow walls of Box Canyon.
