What Is The Centipede Trail?

The Centipede Trail is a rugged and narrow off-road trail that winds through the foothills of the Bradshaw Mountains near Black Canyon City, Arizona. Connecting the famous old western village of Rock Springs to the Table Mesa Recreational area, this trail is frequently traveled by Jeep clubs and off-roaders from around the world. This area first inhabited by Native Americans including the Hohokam and then later the Yavapai, was eventually stumbled upon by europeans in search of gold. From the late 1800s to present day, the area has been a hot spot for miners, which has lead to and endless amount of off-road trails for us to enjoy. The Centipede is one of our favorite trails, and it is one you wont soon forget.

Additional info:

Guests are to arrive at their scheduled check-in time.

  • All minors must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian

  • 4+ to ride passenger in a UTV (bring car seat if necessary)
  • 2 person minimum for all tours
  • Driving the ATV (not UTV) requires physical exertion

Our trails are awesome, like dirt roller coasters, but they are technical. Driving the ATV requires upper body strength. If you have any concerns about this, we HIGHLY recommend booking the UTV instead, which is easy to drive like a car.
