General Information

Description - Consisting of a scenic portion of the Hieroglyphic Mountain Range, the most prominent peaks are Garfias Mountain (elevation 3,381 feet) and Hellgate Mountain (elevation 3,339 feet). Other peaks, most over 3,000 feet in elevation, encircle Burro Flats, effectively isolating the flats from the surrounding countryside.

Attractions - Most of the wilderness is covered by Sonoran desert shrub vegetation saguaro, paloverde, barrel cactus, ocotillo, and desert grasses. Primitive camping spots are abundant, and plants, animals, and geology provide photographic and viewing opportunities.

Some lands around and within the wilderness are not federally administered. Please respect the property rights of the owners and do not cross or use these lands without their permission.

Recreation - Several mountains with cliffs offer climbing, and the canyons offer opportunities for hiking and sightseeing.

Location - The 9,900-acre Hells Canyon Wilderness lies 25 miles northwest of Phoenix, Arizona in Maricopa and Yavapai counties.
