Overview: The first and last 5 miles are on the relatively easy but sometimes rough Battle Axe Road. The actual 10 mile Walnut Canyon loop is VERY rough, rocky with plenty of washouts. due to some steep sections with tenuous traction I would only recommend a short-wheelbase high-clearance 4x4 vehicle with a rear locker. The beginning and end of the Walnut Canyon loop is at: 33.15028 -111.09315
