Arch Canyon and Combs Wash

Wednesday, November 23, 2016

Alt Names

Comb Wash, Texas Canyon, Texas Flat, Dog Tank Spring, Dog Draw, Posey Trail, Mule Canyon

Last Known StatusOpen

This scenic area offers miles of ATV trails that provide panoramic mountain views, interesting rock formations and colorful canyons. The trails to the north are mildly challenging except for Hotel Rock, which is rated as a black diamond due to its rugged and steep climbs and chunky rock obstacles.

Camping is permitted throughout the area but a popular place to park is at Combs Wash Campground, a primitive but shady site surrounded by large cottonwood trees and a shallow creek. The campground is located south of Highway 95 and can accommodate large RVs. Camping is free but there are no amenities except for a vault toilet so come prepared.

To access the OHV trails to the north you will have to get back on Hwy 95, turn west and cross the small bridge then turn right onto North Combs Wash Road.
