A wilderness route through a rift valley in the remote Bates Mountains. This unmarked route follows an ancient migration corridor of the Hohokam Indians. These ancient people migrated hundreds of miles to reach the Sea of Cortez at the mouth of the Colorado River. They left fragments of seashells along their paths, leading archaeologists to identify the rift valley of the Bates Mountains as an important route for pre-Columbian trading. The route follows a natural trench that splits the Bates Mountains into two separate cordilleras. This wild and remote range looks much the same as it did when Europeans first laid eyes upon it, and showcases a classic Sonoran Desert ecosystem dominated by giant cacti.
