Though it is a tiny town, Yarnell has a surprisingly pleasant number of diversions for visitors. Stroll on weekend days among the attractions along Highway 89, and step into shops with smiling proprietors offering antiques, unique gifts and special imported items.
With small motels and RV parks, Yarnell is ideal for a weekend getaway, or longer. Sneak away for some quiet time at the comfortable local library or take a hike and enjoy the unusual and beautiful terrain.
Yarnell has its unique boulders and mountains that create a stunning landscape. To arrive in Yarnell on Highway 89 coming from Wickenburg, travelers gain altitude in a sometimes sweeping, sometimes hairpin-like series of curves. Popular with motorcyclists, this ascent up Yarnell Hill is also an excellent vista for photographers. A lookout point accessible via the downhill leg of Highway 89, which splits into two separate roadways as it negotiates the craggy terrain, offers gorgeous panoramic views of the desert valley some 2,000 feet below. Catch this point at sunset or sunrise to add an expanded palette of colors to the sky and land that delights the eyes.
At an elevation of nearly 5,000 feet, Yarnell enjoys cooler temperatures and clearer skies than down in the Wickenburg/Phoenix area valleys. Come on up for a friendly visit – the weather’s fine!
