The Apache Wash Loop is located in the northern area of the Sonoran Preserve in Phoenix, Arizona. Beginning at the Apache Wash trailhead the loop starts out by crossing Paradise Wash and traveling alongside of it until it reaches the Carefree Highway. From there the trail loops back toward the trailhead along Apache Wash. At the upper end of Apache Wash the loop intersects with the Sidewinder trail before crossing a ridge and heading back to the trailhead. For the last 0.4 miles the loop shares routes with the Ocotillo trail.
