Clover Mountains Wilderness

General Location Maps Contacts Area Management Wilderness Laws Trip Planning

Recreational Opportunities

Hiking, camping, climbing and rock scrambling, as well as horseback riding are outstanding due to the variety of scenic topography, which creates numerous routes, trip lengths and challenges. Hunting for mule deer is good. The Clover Mountains are particularly inviting for hikers, hunters and horse packers. Very few impacts from humans are present, offering a rare opportunity to see undisturbed nature. Cultural resources within the Clover Mountains Wilderness include petroglyphs, pictographs, and the remains of a historic cabin in the Cottonwood Creek drainage. Historical sites in the area include Kiernan Ranch and Post Office located on the boundary near the mouth of the Cottonwood Canyon, along with Bradshaw Ranch, approximately 3 miles east of Elgin.
