Juniper Mesa and Apache Creek Wilderness Map

The Juniper Mesa and Apache Wilderness Map produced by the US Forest Service contains the most up-to-date information on access roads, trails, campsites, terrain, and points of interest within the Juniper Mesa and Apache Wilderness areas. All wilderness maps contain contour lines, a topographic quad index and contact phone numbers, and the vast majority contain planning tips and descriptions of the terrain.

Flat-topped Juniper Mesa, running east-west, dominates this Wilderness on the southern end of the Juniper Mountains. The mesa is broken by steep canyons that open onto rolling hills with elevations ranging from 7,050 feet down to 5,650 feet.

Small, remote, and relatively rugged, Apache Creek Wilderness offers rolling hills of juniper and pinyon pine interspersed with outcroppings of granite. Elevations range from 5,200 feet to 7,200 feet.

You’ll find no maintained trails, and there are currently no public access points, but hiking and camping are unrestricted. U.S. Forest Service roads encircle the area. Bring maps and a compass.
