How to Get There
This hike is located near Superior, AZ.

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).

Difficulty

Difficulty Rating
Moderate
difficulty detail
While it's not a great distance, the walking is slow because of the bolder hopping and trail finding. The canyon is a nice location for a hike. This is a medium difficulty hike.

Permits

Be Aware of
Scrambling, bolder hopping, trail finding

If a variable terrain hike through a desert canyon appeals to you, this is your hike.
