Arizona OHV Trails and Places to Ride


Important Information



There are numerous opportunities for OHV recreation in Arizona. Local land management agencies have information and maps available. Please contact the local land management agencies for updated information on access, closures, rules and regulations, and other information prior to planning activities. Much of this information including maps was provided by the External Resources referenced in the top right column. Some of these areas are State Trust Land and a permit is required. You can now get your permit on-line by Clicking Here. Other areas require daily or annual use fees. Please contact BLM Field Offices and other local land management agencies for updated fee information.


Alto Pit OHV Area

Information: A 400-acre site that includes a 13-acre cross country area open to ATVs and trail bikes, 8 miles of designated trails for ATVs and trail bikes, and a beginner's course for vehicles under 90cc.


Location: Four miles west of Prescott on Iron Springs Road.


Facilities: include restrooms, picnic tables, fire rings, loading/unloading area, and shade ramadas are available for day use. There is a day use fee of $3. On Jan. 1, 2009 the fee will increase to $5. At this time, group camping requires special-use permit. Future intentions are to provide OHV camping. Ponderosa pine forest type. All seasons, occasional snow in winter.

Arizona Strip

Permit: This is State Trust Land and a permit or OHV Decal is required. The OHV Decal allows for crossing State Trust Land and riding on trails only. All other activities requires a State Land Recreation Permit. You can get your permit on-line by Clicking Here.


Information: The Arizona Strip, "where the west stays wild," is that vast region of Arizona north of the Colorado River. Much of this remote and largely unsettled area is traversed by more than 5,000 miles of dirt roads. Road conditions range from well-maintained graded roads, to high clearance two-tracks, to challenging routes that require 4-wheel drive vehicles. No services are available in this largely back country area, so be prepared. Motorized vehicles are generally limited to existing routes, with wilderness areas closed and National Monuments limited to designated routes. Watch for signs in these areas. High Desert to Ponderosa Pine Forest. Generally all seasons, however, avoid use in wet weather.

Box Canyon / Coke Ovens

Access: Take U.S. 60 east to Florence Junction, then SR 79 south to Price Rd. (roughly 16 miles). Price Rd. is just north of the Gila River crossing. Go east on Price Rd. (dirt road) approximately 10 miles to a fork in the road, continue left leaving the railroad tracks.


Route: Shortly after entering Box Canyon you will need a 4x4. To Martinez Mine, about 1 hour. To Coke Ovens, 2 hours. Jeep trail into Coke Ovens is very scenic. This trip is a full day.

Rating: Rough to extreme. Worthy trip with right vehicle. Experienced drivers a must. 4x4 ONLY. Do trip in a caravan with no less than three vehicles-preferably five. Not recommended for newer SUV's.


Warning: Be very cognizant of the weather conditions up the watershed. Do not attempt after or during rain storms. Being caught unaware in Box Canyon will have dire consequences. Be prepared!
