11/20/21 Bulldog Canyon FR1356/FR10/FR3554 - Easy to Moderate

Recommended Posts

Bulldog Canyon is part of the "Great Western Trail" in Arizona, traveling through the Tonto National Forest's Goldfield Mountains and the Sonoran Desert. It offers incredible views of the nearby Superstition Mountains and is home to some of Arizona's most infamous legends, like the Lost Dutchmen Gold.  At one time, the Bulldog Mine was one of the richest gold mines in the country but has now been reclaimed by the desert. The Goldfield Mountain area is littered with towering cliffs and rugged canyons that are a welcome break from the flat desert valley.

 

Please join us for another fun day of off roading.  We'll start at the south end of this run on FR1356 and head to FR10.  After connection with FR10 we'll head north until we get to FR3554.  After connectiong to FR3554 we'll head west until the end of the trail.
