A cruisey wilderness two-track into the canyon.

Luke Mattar

Overview [Suggest Changes]

Except for this road, all the land around this area is wilderness and closed to bike travel.
An out-and-back ride with with some spectacular scenery and the chance to spot big-horn sheep.
Features: -none- [Add/Remove]
Family Friendly: The ride from the parking lot to the rocks is fairly tame, and the return is all downhill, luckily for tired kids.

Description [Suggest Changes]

The ride starts at the junction of Queen Canyon and Palm Canyon Road. The trail is a doubletrack, jeep road with some short, loose sections and the odd wash you have to cross.

You'll climb a mild grade for the first half. Finally, you reach the first rock formation. From here, the trail enters Kofa Queen Canyon and the roadway becomes fairly rough with boulders and ruts. The scenery here is spectacular and the traveling fairly easy.

The ride eventually comes to a fork, and Skull Rock is right there at the junction (going further along the main canyon would bring you to Kofa Queen Mine two miles farther out, south of the road. Taking the other fork would bring you to Cereus Tank and Tunnel Mine.)

As mapped, this is an out-and-back where you turn back around at Skull Rock.

Keep an eye out for jeeps and big-horn sheep!
