Mazatzal Wilderness

Picture this: brush and pine-covered mountains, sometimes broken by narrow, vertical-walled canyons on the east, and the Verde River flowing gently through on the west. Visit the untrammeled land of the Mazatzal Wilderness, but don't expect to see it all in a day.

Things to Do

There are about 40 scenic hiking trails across more than 252,000 acres of both the Tonto and Coconino National Forests. You’ll find wildlife, great photography, and the kind of serene exercise that only comes from taking a hike in nature.

Hotels, Lodging & Camping

Mazatzal Wilderness isn’t far from the Greater Phoenix area, which makes it a great day trip. But if you want to experience everything Mazatzal Wilderness has to offer, you’ll want to bring your camping supplies and spend a few nights here.
