Hamm Canyon is a scenic spot that looks more like a rock wall when viewed from Road 20R. It offers good hiking as well as sport and trad opportunities. Camping is also easily found here but with no water in the immediate area.
Drive 8 miles down 20R. There are two unmarked roads on the right just after a cattleguard. Take the second road straight to the canyon. Park by the wash to start. If you are setting up to camp there is a site northeast of the wash.
