Likely In-Season!
Donnelly Slope is located 36 miles east-northeast of Casa Grande Arizona. A high clearance 4x4 vehicle and a competent driver is recommended to access the trailhead. February and January are the best months to enjoy this hike. This hike involes off trail navigation. Review triplogs, photos and the route to understand the terrain before heading out.

Overview: Unique rock slope with intricate inner canyons sitting in the shadow of South Butte. The outer west edge has a long elevated cliff face overlooking the desert floor towards Florence. Donnelly Slope is a great walk-about destination for random exploring. Very Special!
