Plunging through layers of basalt, limestone, and sandstone on its journey from the Mogollon Rim to the Verde River, Wet Beaver Creek has carved a rugged, high-walled canyon. Trail access is limited to the west end only; otherwise the Wet Beaver Wilderness is essentially trackless. Most hikers see only a small portion of the wilderness where the Bell and Apache Maid trails enter its extreme western edge. You can extend these trails by hiking beyond the wilderness boundary. You may also hike upstream along the canyon bottom. Be forewarned, however, that the terrain is rough and broad pools may require swimming. This trail guide covers an area with 6.5 miles of trails.
