Features: A memorable drive through stark rocky canyons and gorgeous Sonoran Desert. Ends at spectacular Martinez Canyon, an historic mining area. Views of the Superstition Mountains and Weaver’s Needle can be seen from high points along the route. Enjoy Martinez Cabin in the cool shade of giant cottonwoods at the end of the drive. Hike a half-mile to well-preserved Martinez Mine. Most of the trail is easy except one moderate spot. A stock Suzuki Sidekick in our group had no problems. Some light brush rubs against vehicles near the end of the trail. Route-finding is complex so follow directions carefully. This is a remote and rugged area so carry plenty of water and be self-sufficient. Much of the trail follows wash bottoms where flash flooding is possible.
