Four Peaks

Friday, June 12, 2015

Alt Names

Sugarloaf Mountain, Rolls OHV Area, Sycamore Creek OHV Area

Last Known StatusOpen

Deep sand washes, steep cliffs, desert single track, huge play areas, and ridge top Jeep and ATV trails with panoramic mountain views are among the many things this place has to offer. Overnight camping is permitted and there are numerous sites that are suitable for large RVs.

The four peaks for which this area is named provide a great backdrop but the most notable features of this area are the steep canyon chutes carved into the hillside of the main wash.

Nearby Saguaro Lake has a marina, beach area and boat rentals, as well as a secluded campground that is only accessible by a boat. Be sure to bring an EZ-Up and some water because there are no services and the climate is hot and dry.
