Mount Trumbull Wilderness

General Location Maps Contacts Area Management Wilderness Laws Trip Planning


The Mt. Trumbull Wilderness is located in a remote corner of northwestern Arizona near the Tuweep Overlook of the Grand Canyon. Visitors pass Mt. Trumbull and the wilderness area on their way to this north rim Grand Canyon overlook. Access is provided from Fredonia, Arizona (take the Tuweep Road 5 miles east of Pipe Springs National Monument)and then driving south for approximately 50 miles on a maintained county road (may be impassable when wet). Alternate but longer access can be obtained by driving south from St. George, Utah to Bundyville, Arizona and then east to Mt. Trumbull, approximately 65 miles. No services or facilities exist outside of the nearby towns (Fredonia or Colorado City, Arizona or St. George, Utah). The Mt. Trumbull Trail provides an approximate 5 mile round trip hike to the top of Mt. Trumbull. Access to this trail is from the trailhead on the south side of Mt. Trumbull.
