Description: The 8,300-acre Tres Alamos Wilderness is in Yavapai County, 80 miles northwest of Phoenix, Arizona and six miles south of the Santa Maria River. The eastern part of the wilderness takes in the scenic ridgelines, canyons and washes of the southern Black Mountains, whereas the western side consists mainly of lower desert bajada and plains. Sawyer Peak at 4,293 feet, is the highest point in the wilderness and in the Black Mountains. The colorful monolith of Tres Alamos is the area's most striking landscape feature. Saguaro and paloverde cover the hills and bajadas; Joshua trees and creosotebush dot the plains, and mesquite and acacia line the washes. Wildlife includes the Gila monster, prairie falcon, and golden eagle, and possibly Cooper's hawks and kit fox. All of the area offers landscapes suitable for hiking, backpacking, sight-seeing, photography and camping. Equestrian use would be good on the bajadas and plains. The area would be equally enjoyed by both experienced and novice backcountry users.

Location: Take Highway 93 to the Lake Alamo Road. Drive about 6.5 miles westward on the Lake Alamo Road to an intersection and take the right fork. Drive about 7 miles to reach the southern boundary of the wilderness.   Latitude: 34.238633   Longitude: -113.191861
