Wabayuma Peak Wilderness

Description:

The Wabayuma Peak Wilderness (38,944 acres), in Arizona is managed by the Bureau of Land Management. In 1990, the Wabayuma Peak Wilderness became part of the now over 109 million acre National Wilderness Preservation System established by the Wilderness Act of 1964. In wilderness, you can enjoy challenging recreational activities and extraordinary opportunities for solitude. Please follow the regulations in place for this area, and use Leave No Trace techniques when visiting to ensure protection of its unique natural and experiential qualities. How to follow the seven standard Leave No Trace principles differs in different parts of the country (desert vs. Rocky Mountains). Click on any of the principles listed below to learn more about how they apply. Motorized equipment and equipment used for mechanical transport are generally prohibited on all federal lands designated as wilderness. This includes the use of motor vehicles (including OHVs), motorboats, bicycles, hang gliders, wagons, carts, portage wheels, and the landing of aircraft including helicopters Contact the agency for more information about regulations. No legal access is possible to the north and northwest sides of the wilderness, because access roads cross private property at several points. Water is generally available at springs indicated on topographic maps. Always purify any water found prior to use. Summertime temperatures, even at the higher elevations, can be dangerous if you are not prepared. More moderate conditions are present between October and May, although snow can be present during winter months, which can make access to higher elevations difficult or impossible. A high-clearance four-wheel drive vehicle is strongly recommended for all access routes. See map for more detailed route information.
