Beef Basin Drive

Beef Basin Drive Professional Review and Guide

"There are many Ancestral Puebloan (sometimes referred to as the Anasazi) structures and rock-art sites in this scenic basin, some close to the main Beef Basin loop road. Others are up side roads.

On the way to Beef Basin, which has a long history in the cattle business, are magnificent views of Cottonwood Canyon and upper Salt Creek Canyon, in the Needles District. View archaeological sites from a distance. Do not enter or climb on structures or disturb these irreplaceable sites."

Beef Basin is a great place to go. It is truly in the backcountry and no one should go in there with out four-wheel drive because if the weather changes you will be in a mess in a 2 wheel drive vehicle. Beef Basin is full of Archaeological sites that you can visit just of the main roads in the area. You need a good map when you go into Beef Basin because most of the information out there is accurate or is misleading.
