Base Camp Facilities


There are over a dozen trails that wind through the over 9,000 acres of rugged and beautiful BTSR terrain. Many of these trails were established over 8 decades ago and still see traffic today from numerous hikers and horseback riders. Trails range from easy with little to no elevation change, to some of the most rugged and challenging trails that will test even the most experienced hikers.

These are not roads or wide national park trails; they are very rustic and leave little impact on the surrounding beauty you will experience as you hike through our beautiful backcountry. Elevations range from 4,400 feet (Base Camp) and soar to heights of over 6,400 feet at our highest mountain peaks.


As you experience the backcountry trails, there are a variety of rustic camp sites and encampments that range from scenic mountain tops to stream edged valleys and canyon floors. Each site offers unique beauty, possible swimming opportunities (stock tanks and spring fed watering holes), scenic locals (Needle Rock, the Notch, multiple overlooks).

With over 65 miles of trail, winding through and over the scenic Davis Mountains, you will witness some of the most beautiful and impactful overlooks in the state. BTSR includes portions of Little Aguja Canyon, Madera Canyon, Pig Pen Canyon, and Million Dollar Canyon. Looking down into the bottom of one of these canyons, or looking up to rising towers of rock from the bottom of them, you will return home with a new found appreciation for this seldom glimpsed mountainous desert oasis.
