Trail Information

Highlights

Price Road serves as the primary southern entry into the Florence OHV area. The road serves two separate communities that you pass along the route. There are numerous ranches and farms in this area because the Gila River runs adjacent to and sometimes part of the road. You will notice the old canal system along the early sections of the route; these are vital to the area farmers and residents. The views of the mountains on the eastern horizon will begin to grow closer as you travel the desert road. "The Town of Florence was founded in 1866 and is the sixth oldest European settlement in the state of Arizona. Florence is the county seat and is situated in the central portion of Pinal County, Arizona, about 45 minutes away from the Phoenix and Tucson metropolitan areas. Three major transportation corridors run through Florence, including Highway 287, Highway 79, and Hunt Highway. Many prominent recreational landmarks and areas of interest are in and around Florence. The Gila River is a prominent landmark that runs through historic Florence. The Gila River served as the northern border in the Gadsden Purchase in 1854. In addition, Box Canyon, Martinez Canyon, old Silverbell Mine, and many other sites to the east of Florence provide visitors with fantastic scenic views and an opportunity to hike, explore, off-road, or otherwise enjoy the Sonoran Desert. Also in the area are the Casa Grande Ruins, Lost Dutchman State Park, Boyce Thompson Arboretum State Park, Tom Mix Monument, and the Superstition Mountain Wilderness Area." source: http://www.florenceaz.gov/town-history

We ran Price road to get into other roads in the area. It is a decent access road and is pretty in itself, but the better prizes are what this road leads you to!

The access from Hwy 79 needs to be updated on this guide. 1. From Hwy 79 turn East onto Price Road after crossing the railroad tracks. 2. Road curves along about a mile, until you come to a small sign saying "Price Rd Box Canyon Next Intersection" with an arrow pointing Right (South) 3. At the intersection there are a bunch of large pots, about the size of a dumpster, on the East side of the road. 4. Going Left, North, will take you to a gated residential area where you cannot pass. 5. Instead, turn Right, South at the intersection and follow the paved road as it winds around the Country Thunder staging grounds. 6. When you come to a house with a bunch of more-or-less junk vehicles the road will curve to the North to a stop sign as you rejoin the old Price Rd. 7. Turn Right at this stop sign, following the canal to your left, and it will take you to the staging area.

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.

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.
