Wet Beaver Wilderness Trails Professional Review and Guide

"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."

"Slicing deep into the Mogollon Rim, Wet Beaver Creek is a welcome reprieve in this otherwise arid desert terrain. With deep pools of clear water and lush riparian growth, the canyon’s oasis-like ambience is a real treat for hikers."

This is an easy hike although it can be very hot in the summer which can make the easiest trail in Arizona very bad if you're not prepared. There's a few swimming holes you can enjoy a dip in which is wonderful on a hot day. The water is very cold so you may be surprised if you jump right in. There are some cliff areas you can jump or dive off of too which are fun. It can be crowded so if you want a quiet out-of-the-way hike you may not enjoy this one as much.
