The Muggins Mountains Wilderness area is located approximately 25 miles east of Yuma, Arizona. Access by high-clearance and/or four-wheel drive vehicles is recommended. To access Muggins Wash, take exit 21 (Dome Valley) from I-8. Pass through Ligurta on Old Highway 80 and turn north onto County Ave. 20E. Turn east onto County 7th Street and Drive Beyond the Dome Valley Transfer Station to the Muggins Wash nonwilderness corridor. The corridor extends into the center of the Wilderness near the southern base of Muggins Peak but becomes rough, four-wheel-drive-only for the last mile or so. It is recommended that you leave your vehicle near the information kiosk or before descending into the wash.
