Reaching an elevation of nearly 11,000 feet, Escudilla Mountain maintains a real presence on the skyline of the White Mountains. To early Spanish explorers Escudilla’s broad top resembled a bowl, hence the name. Centuries later, the mountain greatly impressed noted naturalist Aldo Leopold during his tenure with the Forest Service in the White Mountains. In his book, A Sand County Almanac, Leopold states, Life in Arizona was bounded under foot by grama grass, overhead by sky, and on the horizon by Escudilla.” He goes on to elegantly describe the taking of Arizona’s last grizzly bear on the mountain. Today Escudilla Mountain is the centerpiece of the 5,200-acre Escudilla Wilderness Area, and the main trail to the top is a National Recreation Trail. Unfortunately, the upper half of the trail was severely affected in 2011 by the 538,000-acre Wallow Fire.
