The sonoran mud turtle, many species of songbirds, deer, bobcat, willow, ash, Arizona walnut, desert hackberry, hawks and falcons, ephemerally flowing water, sheer cliffs soaring above the canyon bottom—these are the features of White Canyon, a small but special wilderness area. But its path to wilderness status was temporarily barred by the presence of nearby mining activity and its future may be uncertain. Put under wilderness protection in 1990, the White Canyon Wilderness is threatened by the potential development of a large open pit mine at Copper Butte, perhaps a mile south of the wilderness. Caves in the canyon walls show evidence of Indian habitation. In 1980, Arizona State University archeologists excavated Hankat Cave within the wilderness where they found evidence of a pre-ceramic culture dating from about 1,500 B.C.Water was what attracted them to this lovely little canyon, and it is water that brings hikers and other recreational users to the White Canyon Wilderness today. This trail guide covers an area that has no maintained trails.
