Last Known StatusOpen

Formerly known as Canyon Off Road Park, Canyon Motocross has now re-opened to the public after a period of closure. The park is open for practice on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Night practice is available on select dates.

The facility offers four tracks that consist of a main, moto mini for 65cc-85cc bikes, peewee and vet track. Quads are welcomed to use the vet track whenever open. The property also has some trails however the surrounding land is owned by the city and county where trail riding is prohibited. The police do monitor and there may be consequences for riding out of bounds.

The track is open for practice year-round but hours are seasonal so check Facebook or call (480) 294-4467 for current schedule before heading out.
