Secret Pass Canyon, Golden Valley, AZ


In march, 2016, our friend Wayne offered, to go with us into Secret Pass Canyon, close to Golden Valley, AZ. Some friends from Offroadpassport joined us. This is definitely a difficult, but extremely scenic trail. There is also an arch in this canyon, but somehow we forgot to spot for it. We saw some hikers in the canyon, but no other vehicle at that day.

Here, we followed a gravel road, which became later some kind of a shelf road.
On the way to the official end of the trail.
We parked at the end of the trail and enjoyed the views. The road was earlier continuing, but is now closed due to a WSA nearby.
So we had to go back the same way, we came in and could enjoy fighting the same obstacles backwards.
Dennis, approaching that climb..
...and making it look easy.
One more rock garden...
And then almost back at the start of Secret Pass Canyon.
