Consisting of thirteen miles of the Maricopa Mountain range amid extensive desert plains, the South Maricopa Mountains Wilderness is, like its sister wilderness to the north, classic Sonoran Desert. The eastern portion of the wilderness is mountainous with long ridges and isolated peaks, separated by plains and arroyos. The western section consists primarily of desert flats. This trail guide covers an area with no maintained trails.
