Mazatzal Wilderness

The Mazatzal Wilderness contains more than 252,500 acres of the Tonto and Coconino National Forests. Established in 1940 and expanded to its present size in 1984, the areaboasts plenty of scenic hiking trials.

The eastern side of this wilderness predominantly consists of brush or pine-covered mountains, sometimes broken by narrow, vertical-walled canyons. On its west side below the steep brush-covered foothills, the Verde River flows through the Sonoran Desert. This river was designated by the U.S. Congress as Arizona's only Wild River Area in 1984.

For more information, visit the US Forest Service's official Mazatzal Wilderness website.
