Off-Road Travel: Box Canyon Trail in Arizona
What happens when opportunity meets preparedness? A phenomenon that some like to call “luck.” Luck can sometimes be chalked up to random happenstance, but we prefer a more active approach to keeping luck on our side. We’ve found it’s possible to tilt the odds in our favor. How? By keeping our off-road rigs in good condition, and by keeping several trails on our bucket list.
A couple seasons ago, we had the chance to make some luck on the Box Canyon Trail near Florence, Arizona. We compounded our good fortune by catching a concert in Tucson to kick things off.
The Box Canyon Trail offers scenic views, brushes with the past, and chances to test your driving skills and your vehicle’s ground clearance. Even though civilization is nearby, Box Canyon feels remote. A fiery sunset topped off the trip.
So make your own luck. Keep your rig in good shape and create a bucket list. When opportunity meets preparedness, the trail is yours.
