More about Fishhooks Wilderness
The 10,500-acre Fishhooks Wilderness is located about 30 miles northwest of Safford, Arizona in Graham County. This isolated wilderness area provides outstanding solitude for visitors with its scenic vistas and rugged beauty . Upper, lower, and middle Fishhooks, Sam, Steer Springs and Dutch Pasture canyons offer pleasant hiking in seldom-visited areas that are tempered with shady riparian vegetation.
The canyon is named for the three canyons that form the hook-shaped curves in the center of the wilderness. There are no trails in this wilderness, so compass-and-map navigation skills are a must for hikers.
Gila Peak, rising to 6,629 feet, supports a border pinyon pine forest, found only in southeastern Arizona. The lower slopes and benches are covered with grassland and chaparral while the area's canyons support riparian vegetation.
