Recreational Opportunities

Offering surprising and spectacular views of the Grand Canyon, Jumbo Springs provides endless opportunities for scenic viewing, photography, hiking, and camping. The abundance of wildlife makes Jumbo Springs ideal for wildlife viewing, as well as hunting and trapping with proper licensing. There are no designated trails in this wilderness area.

Non-commercial hunting and trapping is permitted within Jumbo Springs Wilderness according to state and local laws. All hunters must be in possession of a valid state hunting license and tag. Grazing of pack stock animals is not permitted. Feeding is limited to packed in, certified weed free feed; pellets are strongly recommended. If hiking in the backcountry during hunting season, please dress in brightly colored clothing so that you are visible to hunters.

Rock climbing and scrambling are allowed within the wilderness. Always use caution when climbing. The rock is very brittle and can easily break off. After a desert rain the rock may be slippery when wet or icy.
