Kofa Mountains

The site of the Kofa Mountains jutting up into the Arizona sky is truly breathtaking. This area of Arizona is definitely not for everyone. It is what some consider the part of Arizona that fits the image most people have of the desert. This is a 663,700 acre refuge, and there are no developed trails. You may come across faint animal trails, and old Indian trade routes, but don't plan on finding marked and manicured trails. Winter and Spring are considered by some to be the best times to hike the Kofas. You will find the largest number of natural groves of Washingtonia Palm trees in Arizona, as well as possibly catching a glimpse of some bighorn sheep.

Directions Take the Palm Canyon Rd, east from U.S. Rt. 95 and go about 7.5 miles. This will take you to the mouth of Palm Canyon, the most popular hike in the Kofas. This is a relatively easy hike, and absolutely incredible in the spring when everything is in bloom.

  • Elevation:2200 feet at Palm Canyon parking lot.
  • Mileage:Approximately .5 miles into the canyon.
  • Nearest Supplies Quartrzsite, Yuma
  • Buckskin Mountain
    State Park

    There are three short but steep trails here, Wedge Hill, Thunderbolt, and Buckskin. The trails take you to the top of the mesa, and provide you with a sweeping view of the river.

    Directions To obtain information on the trails, contact the Buckskin Mountain State Park at: PO Box BA, Parker, AZ, 85344.

    Hualapai Mountain Park

    Many people would consider this the perfect situation, a short climb to spectacular views. Whether you choose Hualapai, at 8647 ft.or either of the other two mountains here, you will be pleasantly surprised. These are relatively easy trails, that provide you with views of four states, including Utah, Nevada, California and of course Arizona.

    Directions Take the Hualapai Mountain Rd, from Rt. 93 in Kingman about 12 miles up Sawmill Canyon. This will lead you to Hualapai Mountain Park.
