Bulldog Canyon is worth the effort to get the Tonto Forest Ranger Station Pass (has combos for locked gates) as it has absolutely beautiful scenery with easy to moderately challenging trail riding (possibly very challenging for some stock SUV's. The Ranger Station has a map which shows some newly added trails. I took my Jeep Wrangler Rubicon along with my buddy’s Toyota FJ Cruiser. I started at the Usery Entrance Gate and followed trail 3554 which travels through some sandy washes and rocky hills along with some cool narrow canyons. At the T-point, we headed south. If you have lower slung running step boards on your stock 4X4, they probably will scrape on rocks, slow going but lots of fun. Now the best part, we took one of the new trails, 1356 to Cottonwood Entrance and I can’t say enough how beautiful and awe inspiring this trail was. I don’t want to spoil the surprise but you will see a spectacular view of Superstition Mountain and the Superstition wilderness on 1356, along with other scenery I’ll let you find out for yourself. I think starting at Usery Pass and then working south to Cottonwood entrance will let the scenery go from good, great, to a spectacular finish but of course, it’s up to you. Besides, everyone else was taking the southern direction so we never had any on-coming traffic on our ride. If you like Bulldog Canyon, then I highly recommend nearby Rolls OHV park for even more trails with very similar scenery and great views of Four Peaks, Weavers Needle and Saguaro Lake, you can also explore some of the Saguaro Lake coast, very fun, get the map at the Ranger Station while you are getting your Bulldog Canyon Permit. If you live in the Phoenix area, don’t miss Bulldog Canyon, and please respect the rules so they don’t close it down. Happy Wheeling!
