It’s an intriguing name, Tres Alamos—in Spanish, “three cottonwoods.” Trying to figure out how it fits this wilderness, you play a guessing game with whomever named it. Was there once a triplet of cottonwoods growing at the well-watered convergence of dry washes? Or is there something about the configuration of the wilderness area’s central monolith, dubbed Tres Alamos, that reminded someone of a cottonwood grouping? That monolith, almost bumped up against the area’s high point, 4,293-foot Sawyer Peak, is the most striking landscape feature of the wilderness. The western portion of the Tres Alamos Wilderness is desert bajadas and plains, while the eastern section is comprised of the more scenic ridgelines, canyons, and washes of the southern reaches of the Black Mountains. The mix of vegetation in the wilderness is indicative of intermingling Sonoran and Mohave Desert biomes. This trail guide covers an area with no maintained trails.
