Tucson Phoenix Box Canyon Tour Archive

  • The Tucson Phoenix Box Canyon Tour is in Florence, Arizona, about halfway between Tucson & Phoenix on State Route 79. Driving time from either city is approximately 45min-1.5 hours depending on your location.   There are tons of trails where you could spend days out there if you wanted or you could just take a machine out for a half day (4hrs). Along the trail are some 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 ride 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!
