This absolutely stunning and serene wilderness area runs for about 30 miles east/west just above the Mogollon Rim, north of Strawberry, Arizona. Because of few points of access and the fact that the entire wilderness in a box canyon, this is your destination for solitude.
There are few marked trails other than a few near the west end, around Camp Verde and a couple of trails on the upper part that will get you down to the canyon bottom.
Once in the bottom of the canyon your routes are either up or down stream.
This place is ideal for a 2-3 day ultralight backpacking trip. Pack everything in dry sacks and plan on getting wet.
