Bloody Basin Road Professional Review and Guide
"This easygoing trail passes through some spectacular, remote scenery east of the Agua Fria River as well as in the Agua Fria National Monument. In dry weather it is suitable for highclearance vehicles, but in wet weather it becomes impassable, as signs at the start and finish of the trail warn. In addition the ford through the Agua Fria River near the western end of the trail can be temporarily impassable after heavy rain.
Special Attractions: Access to the Verde River; Easy, scenic trail along Indian Spring Wash. High-clearance vehicles are preferred, but not necessary. This trail is dirt roads, but may have rocks, grades, water crossings, or ruts that make clearance a concern in a normal passenger vehicle. The trail is fairly wide, so that passing is possible at almost any point along the trail. Mud is not a concern under normal weather conditions."
