The Blue Range Primitive Area in Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest remains one of Arizona's untouched and little known jewels. This is a land of rugged mountains, steep canyons, and stark ridges that is at the same time remote and accessible through an extensive trail system. Trails are open to non-motorized and non-mechanized use only within the primitive area.
This area was also the focal point for a program to reintroduce the Mexican Grey Wolf and assist their recovery. The first wolves were released in 1998.
