Hewitt Canyon Trail, Forest Road 172, is located in the Hewitt Station OHV area of Tonto National Forest. This is a popular area for hiking, dispersed camping, and offroad driving.

The beginning of the trail will take you across Queen Creek Wash. Have your camera ready. Hewitt Canyon treats visitors with towering rock cliffs and buttes. With a good eye, you can spot Elephant Arch, a natural rock arch resembling an elephant's head and trunk.

Further along the trail is a selection of dispersed camping sites, an old cattle coral with a windmill, and a rock water catchment. While the trail ends at the Woodbury Hiking Trailhead, Hewitt Canyon can be combined with several others to create the Montana Mountain Loop.
