Wabayuma Peak Trail
This 2.5 mile trail leads to the Wabayuma Peak summit. The first two miles of Wabayuma Peak Trail follow an old jeep road into the Wabayuma Peak Wilderness. At about the two-mile mark, you will find yourself in a saddle; a wire fence will be on your left. Look for the narrow path heading up the slope. Near the top of the ridge, the trail becomes faint, but blaze marks on large ponderosa pine will guide you to the top. The trail ends in a saddle a half mile south of the summit; proceed cross-country to reach the peak. The summit offers spectacular views of the Black Mountains to the west, the Aquarius Mountains to the east, and of the Hualapai Mountains to the north and south.
Wabayuma Peak Trail is rated moderate for hikers and difficult to extremely difficult for equestrians. Weather conditions are most comfortable in late spring through fall.
A high clearance 4-wheel drive vehicle is strongly recommended. The road may become impassible during periods of snowfall or prolonged rainfall.
Proceed west on I-40 from Kingman for approximately 23 miles. Take Exit 25, which is the Yucca and Alamo Road exit. Follow the signs for Alamo Road, proceeding south and east from the interchange for 3.2 miles. Turn left onto Boriana Mine Road and drive an additional 17.2 miles to the trailhead, which will be on the left. Parking is available at the small pullout to the right of the road.
