Amazing views in a completely remote area. Walking around the area is easy and the reward are the most breathtaking colors and rock formations AZ has to offer.

To reach Blue Canyon you must head down AZ 264 until you reach Indian pass 7 or 6660, it's the same road, turn west. The turn is not marked, it is only noticeable by a cattle guard. GPS coordinates are 35°58'15.92"N 110°49'47.26"W. From here on out the road is dirt and high clearance vehicle is requiredDo not attempt this road if there has been recent heavy rain or if there are possible high showers. Follow the road about 8 miles in. You will pass through a ravine or small canyon. Upon passing that point you will begin to see the multi-colored rock formations. Here you can pull off and explore and take photos. Best times are sunset and sunrise. To exit you can continue to follow Indian rt 7/6660 west which will lead to HW 160 or backtrack to AZ 264. Please respect the land and pack your trash out with you.
