Hells Canyon Wilderness Trails Professional Review and Guide
"Judging from the many instances of the word “hell” in its place names, work and travel during Arizona’s settlement days must have been hellaciously difficult at times. So when you come across a deep basin with sides so formidably steep that stockmen rounding up cattle called it Hell Hole, or see a deep chasm called Hell Hole Canyon standing athwart a stagecoach route, you understand why. Although the Hells Canyon Wilderness is small, it is fairly heavily used, owing to the ease of travel along its lengthy arroyos, the beauty of its eroded rock forms and desert landscape, and its closeness to Phoenix. This trail guide covers an area with no maintained trails."
