Last Known StatusOpen
Trail Photo

This canyon is littered with steep and challenging hill climbs that require a big four-stroke or 500cc two-stroke to make it to the top consistently. The valley floor has some deep sandy washes and trails that form long loops but the most interesting routes require a few good hill climbs.

There are plenty of spots to park and camp but there are no RV hookups or shade in the area. Sometimes during the evening, violent canyon winds may kick up and can do a pretty good job of shaking RV's and trailers.

The visitor center at the entrance has maps and guide books for all of the surrounding area. A quarter mile to the south is the Jawbone Canyon Store which carries basic groceries, firewood, ice, propane and gasoline. Live bands usually play here during holiday weekends, and ATV rentals are located next door.
