The Box Canyon Tour between Phoenix and Tucson in Florence Arizona

Featuring petroglyphs, an old stage coach and pony express depot from the 1860s and an awesome slot canyon with 1500 foot walls!

Phoenix & Tucson ATV Tours

The Phoenix Tucson Box Canyon Tour happens in Florence, Arizona, about halfway between Tucson & Phoenix on State Route 79. Driving time from either city is approximately 1.5 hours depending on your location.

Our trail is about 34 miles in length and about 3.25 hours in duration. Elevation gain and descent is over 1500 vertical feet as we climb up and over the front range of the Pinal Mountains. Along the tour your guide will point out Indian petroglyphs left over from the ancient Native Americans.

Another point of interest is an old adobe building that served as a way station for the Butterfield Overland Stage Coach Company during the 1860’s. For a short time this also serviced the Pony Express on what was know as the “Butterfield Route”.

The real highlight of the tour is Box Canyon. You’ll be in the canyon for about six miles. The middle 3 miles is slot canyon with walls that are about 1500 feet high on both sides and only about 15-20 feet apart in some places. The scenery is incredible!
