White Canyon Hot
From the Phoenix area, take US-60 East to the town of Superior. Once in Superior, take HWY-177 South 9.6 miles to Battle Axe Road (on right). It's a 4.5 mile drive on a dirt road to the trailhead. A high clearance vehicle is recommended. After 1.6 miles, stay right at the fork at the coral. At 1.9 miles, stay right again at the fork. After 3.3 miles, there is a narrow spot in the road, just after a cattle guard. After 3.8 miles, stay right again (to the left is a pretty neat spring). After 4.5 miles, leave the main dirt road and turn right. Drive the short distance (staying left) to a small turn around. Park here and start walking along the trail next to the brown Wilderness trail marker to the trail register (about 100 yards from the parking area).
If a variable terrain hike through a desert canyon appeals to you, this is your hike.
