Red Canyon Jeep Trail (SR2013) is a beginner-friendly road that runs from Interstate 10 through the Orocopia Mountains, ending approximately 12.5 miles away at Salt Creek. Most of the trail is well maintained dirt-road but there are a few steep hills with some with mild ruts, however any 4WD vehicle should be able to complete this trail. Because the road is fairly well maintained and has only a few mildly steep up/downhill sections this trail is well suited for new off-roaders.
Red Canyon Jeep Trail ends at Salt Creek across from the Chocolate Mountain Aerial Gunnery Range. By following the dirt-road known as The Bradshaw Trail (aka Salt Creek, aka Summit Road) south approximately 4 miles you will come upon the abandoned Eagle Mountain Railroad Trestle. The free .GPX file download follows Red Canyon Jeep Trail to Salt Creek, then continues down to the abandoned Railroad Bridge.
