Probably no one will ever really know how the Hassayampa River got its name. Early mining notices list it variously as “Assamp,” “Hassamp” or “Hasiamp.” A secretary of the mining district, it is said, revamped the spelling to “Hassayamp,” which he believed to be more authentically Spanish. One account asserts that the river was named by legendary mountain man and guide Pauline Weaver who declared it meant “beautiful waters.” Probably not, but we do know that the Weaver Mountains, the range in which the wilderness is located, were named for Weaver. Another story, crediting the Yuma Indians with the name, says it means “water that is hidden” or “dry bed.” Just as interesting as the uncertainty about the Hassayampa’s etymology is the legend warning travelers that to drink from the river’s waters was to risk becoming a perpetual liar. This trail guide covers an area with no maintained trails.
