Visible for many miles around, the four impressively rugged peaks of the Four Peaks Wilderness are familiar landmarks in central Arizona. Elevations vary from 1,600 feet near Mormon Flat Dam to 7,657 feet at Brown’s Peak, the highest of the four peaks. Impressive stands of saguaro cactus, along with other plants associated with the Sonoran Desert, are found at the lower elevations. At around 4,000 feet, arid grasslands, which blend with desert landscape features, begin to give way to chaparral, a mixture of piñon-juniper, Gambel oak, and thickets of manzanita. The ponderosa pine is the dominant tree of the highest reaches of the Four Peaks Wilderness. Some Douglas fir is also found there along with a few small groves of aspen on the north slope of Brown’s Peak. Some of the narrow canyons of the wilderness are lined with cottonwood, willow, sycamore, and other vegetation typical of riparian zones. Unusually sharp variations in topography mark the Four Peaks Wilderness. Below the rugged summits of the peaks themselves are a series of complex ridges and drainages. At lower elevations near the Apache and Canyon Reservoirs, steep bluffs and deep gorges mark the terrain. This trail guide covers an area with 40 miles of trails.
