Sort of sandwiched between other better-known Rim-Country wildlands, somewhat isolated, and therefore less frequently visited, the Salome Wilderness offers backcountry venturers a chance for real solitude. Salome Creek, which runs the entire east-west length of the wilderness and is a year-round stream in its upper reaches, and Workman Creek, another perennial stream, contain deep pools except during periods of prolonged drought. The wilderness name is interesting. Spanish-speaking settlers named the creek for the biblical Salome, daughter of Herodias, who was rewarded with the head of John the Baptist after a dance performance. Later, American settlers corrupted the name to “Sally May,” supposedly after two daughters of an 1880s pioneer, and an apocryphal legend grew around that contention. When the Tonto National Forest was mapped in 1927, “Salome” was restored. This trail guide covers an area with 12 miles of trails.
