Location and Description
This 14,650-acre wilderness lies 45 miles south of Colorado City, Arizona, just north of the Grand Canyon in Mohave County.
Mt. Logan is an area of interesting volcanic activity. It includes basalt ledges, cinder cones, ponderosa pine forests, pinyon-juniper woodlands, and a large, colorful, naturally eroded amphitheater known as Hells Hole. The area provides habitat for deer, turkey, and Kaibab squirrels.
Hiking, camping, scenic vistas, watching wildlife and hunting are some of the prime recreational opportunities found in this wilderness.
Access to the wilderness is Arizona State Road 389 from Fredonia, the Mt. Trumbull Road (Mohave County Roads 109 and 5), and BLM Road 1044. From St. George, Utah, access is the Quail Hill Road (BLM Road 1069) and the Mt. Trumbull Road (Mohave County Road 5). The Arizona Strip Field Office has a visitor map which shows wilderness areas and roads in detail.
A parcel of private land lies within the wilderness at Big Spring. Please respect the property rights of the owner and do not cross or use these lands without permission.

"Perhaps when the time comes that there is no more silence and no more aloneness, there will also be no longer anyone who wants to be alone."
Joseph Wood Krutch, 1958
