WHAT
Walnut Canyon - out by Superior

Trail Description:
The Walnut Canyon trail is #58 in the original AZ Wells book. The trail makes a loop but enters and exits the highway at the same point. It is rated a 2.5 - 3, Moderate. I have run it and do not think it is nearly that tough There are some washed out and rocky sections, a few steep climbs. The trail is in the wash much of the time.

Sliders, skids, and oversized tires recommended, but not mandatory. Some pinstriping possible Smile

It is a beautiful and easy going ride for most of the day with some 4x4 challenges - a bit more leisurely, but will still use 4Low at times, some fun washes to explore.. We will also stop by the natural spring, which is now formerly the natural spring (progress destroyed it!).

Its an all day.

Here are some pics and the link from last couple years
