The trail is about 34 miles (54717 meters) long. Ride through gorgeous areas of the canyon stopping at several spots for picture opportunities. See an old adobe building that used to serve as a way station for the Butterfield Overland Stage Coach Company during the 1860s.

This trip really is an adventure. The canyon walls you drive through sometimes reach up to 1500-feet (457-meters) high, and cacti and rocky terrains are everywhere. Your guide is also super experienced to help you through all weather conditions, such as the heat or rain.

Ray made our trip perfect. He taught us some interesting facts about the native Americans who lived here and showed us some other historic sites. He had us laughing the whole time as well. Highly recommend!
Beautiful day.
Harriet_P, Apr 2023
The forecast was for a very hot day which may have scared people off. This was to my benefit because I had the guide (Bill) to myself. It was a glorious day and I saw beautiful scenery. The ATV was great fun to drive.
Great
Lori_L, Feb 2023
The cannon was the best part. The only thing that stopped a 5 star review was we didn’t stop enough for photo’s.

Beautiful scenery, loved the canyon and the guide was great. We went in December, bring coats, it can get chilly.
Worth the trip and extra money
Kurtis_B, Dec 2022
It was fun to visit box canyon. I could tell it was a local hot spot for off road fun. Lot of people out there shooting targets as well. Ray (our guide) had a fun grandpa vibe to him. He was kind and knowledgeable. The views are spectacular! It was worth the trip out of town. I know it is more than the other tours. If u could afford it I would suggest this one.
Great couples activity

Birthday Box Canyon Trip!
Laura_C, Mar 2022
Such an amazing experience! Our tour guide Bill was awesome and very knowledgeable. We stopped frequently on the trip and he gave us little history stories about Box Canyon. That was a huge perk that we weren't expecting. All in all the trip was about 3 hours of driving, 30 minutes of gearing up/tearing down. I would recommend this to all of my friends and family!
Super Fun!
Craig_J, Mar 2022
Box canyon was the most awesome. Great guide! Directions to the starting point could use work . Maybe a sign on 79
