“Outdoors & Recreation in Globe, AZ”

First established in 1933 as a "Primitive Area," this 20,850 acre wilderness is full of surprises, and is a pleasure to explore. While not large in acres, this very special wilderness includes precipitous box canyons, high cliffs, and pine-covered mountains. The extremely rough topography limits (and often prohibits) cross-country travel; however, there is an extensive system of trails (trail condition varies from good to poor). A wide variety of plant and animal species are found here. Species range from those found in the desert to those found at 8,000 feet. A group size of no more than 15 people and no more than 15 head of pack or saddle animals of any type is enforced within this wilderness year-round.

Be on alert as you drive through this rugged territory as it boasts a large population of giant mammals who’d be more than happy to eat you, especially the black bears and mountain lions.
