Hop on your own ATV on this off-roading adventure in the Sonoran Desert. After a safety briefing and training, gear up and ride across rugged, rocky trails in the scenic Bradshaw Mountains, as well as cross the Agua Fria River. Be on the lookout for coyotes, bobcats, and more, and learn about the region's flora and fauna and Native American history from your guide.

Please Note - Cholla Trail is currently closed for trail restorations (closed since spring 2020). Try Echo Canyon or Bobby’s Rock Loop at the Echo Canyon Trailhead instead. Check the Phoenix Parks & Rec site for updates. No current ETA on reopening.

Be careful where you park - many of the streets are residential & you WILL be towed! Try for a space on Invergorden to be safe. Hike only in the early morning; this place gets HOT!

Very difficult hike, my short legs couldn’t get over many of the rocks/boulders. Dangerous at times. Didn’t make it to the top, but got a great workout in. Don’t go when it’s warm. Take water and snacks and good grip shoes.

Fun and challenging trail due to its steep incline while negotiating rocks and boulders the entire route. The quick rise allows great views of the region. Must be able to climb and occasionally pull yourself over large boulders. Great city and mountain views at peak. The boulders make initial descent difficult. Surprised at how many older ( ages in 60’s maybe early 70’s) managed the trail. Many stopped short of the summit but a few went all the way. Crowds at top may diminish the desired tranquility many are seeking but most people were respectful. Brought a liter and a half to drink on a day with temps in low 70’s and finished it all. 2 liters a very good idea. Took me 3 hours round trip with 20-30 min rest at top. Not used to such hikes then allow 4 hours and rest often. Top shape people run it and make it round trip in a little over an hour.
