Arizona Peace Trail

Monday, August 15, 2022

Other Names

Sunkist Trail, Sun Kist Trail

Last Known StatusOpen

This offroad trail forms a long loop with multiple access points to the surrounding towns of Bouse, Parker, Lake Havasu, Salome, Quartzsite, Cibola and Wikieup. The trail is open year-round but the best time to visit is during late fall through the winter months.

The trail is 675 mile long and offers a good mix of old mining and county roads and is marked with both BLM and Arizona Peace Trail carsonite markers. The route takes riders through canyons, sand washes, rolling hills and historic old homesteads.

The most recent staging area was added in October 2021 in Quartzsite which features 1.5 acre parking area, restrooms and a camp host site.

There is no fee charged to ride but all OHVs must have a current Arizona OHV Sticker. The trail winds through mostly BLM land, where camping is free but limited to 14-days. For longer stays check out the Long Term Visitor Areas (LTVAs) that are located in and around Quartzsite.
