To hike Located about halfway between Phoenix and Tucson. Travel on I-10, exiting the freeway at Exit 211, about 10 miles south of Casa Grande. Travel north on AZ-87 just half a mile and turn right onto Milligan Road. Travel 3 miles on paved road, before the road turns to dirt. Continue 1.25 miles to the CAP canal bridge. Proceed through a gate and veer left (continuing an eastward orientation). Avoid the more traveled road that veers to the right after the gate. Drive 1 mile from the gate on a sandy road to the powerline road and turn right. Follow the powerline road 1.5 miles to a T-intersection and turn left to parking area at the canal. A pedestrian bridge over the canal is 100-feet away.
(Note: The powerline road is somewhat rocky with some small wash crossings. High-clearance is required, but 4wd is not necessary). Driving route is available for GPS.
