Some of the richest uranium deposits on the Arizona Strip are located along the Kanab Creek’s spectacular gorge. Setting portions of it aside as wilderness, therefore, required some give-and-take among mining interests and wilderness advocates. In the end, some of the less scenic areas were left out of the 1984 Arizona Wilderness Act, thereby allowing exploration and drilling to continue on the fringes of the wilderness. One of the major tributaries of the Colorado River, Kanab Creek rises fifty miles north in southern Utah and cuts a network of deep vertical gorges across the Kanab and Kaibab plateaus. Its steep canyon walls conceal intricate weather-sculpted knobs, fins, potholes, obelisks, niches, and other carved forms. Lying along the western edge of the Kaibab Plateau, the Kanab Creek Wilderness, consisting of 68,600 acres administered by the Forest Service and 6,700 acres under Bureau of Land Management (BLM), is rugged, inhospitable terrain, subject to extreme weather conditions. Water is scarce or non-existent, and during summer months temperatures may soar to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. This trail guide covers an area with 50 miles of trails.
