Wabayuma Peak Wilderness

Wabayuma Peak Wilderness

The 40,000-acre Wabayuma Peak Wilderness in the Hualapai Mountains is a short drive from Kingman. The 7,601-foot Wabayuma Peak towers over this rocky wilderness, which plunges almost 5,000 feet in five miles to the desert floor. Sonoran and Mojave vegetations include the northernmost stands of saguaro cacti. Above the desert, chaparral and piñon-juniper woodlands thrive, as do ponderosa pine and Gambel oak. This is fine country for year-round backpacking and horse packing trips.

“If the Wilderness Land Trust didn't exist someone would have to invent it, because expanding and connecting wilderness areas is about the best service anyone can perform for the wild.  Given the unregulated proliferation of drilling, roading and poaching on most BLM and Forest Service lands, and with the juggernaut of climate change upon us, WLT is about as good as it gets.  Thank goodness for WLT.”
