Destinations

The vast Fossil Springs Wilderness is located on both the Red Rock District and the Mogollon Rim District. Visit the official Fossil Creek Wilderness (area is unavailable) page for full details.

This 11,550 acre Wilderness boasts what has been described as the most diverse riparian area in Arizona. Over thirty species of trees and shrubs and over a hundred species of birds have been observed in this unique habitat.

Most people come to Fossil Creek to sunbathe, wade, hike and birdwatch. It's also a great place to take photographs. The lushness of the riparian area strikes a sharp contrast to the brittle desert that surrounds it.
