Wilderness

The Bradshaw Mountains, located south of Prescott, have long been known for being one of the most mineralized mountain ranges in the world.  As early as the mid-1800's, mining first brought settlers to this part of Arizona.  The Bradshaw Ranger District encompasses the Bradshaw Range and extends beyond it, surrounding the city of Prescott.

The Bradshaws offer cool relief from the desert below, with numerous developed and dispersed recreation opportunities available.  Mount Union, in the Bradshaws, is the highest elevation on the forest, at nearly 8,000 feet.  From 7,000 to 8,000 foot elevation along the Bradshaw Range, the vegetation changes from pure forests of ponderosa pine to mixed conifer forests of Douglas-fir and white fir. 

The weather throughout the Bradshaw District is moderate, with daytime temperatures averaging 50 degrees in the winter and 70 degrees in summer.  Recreation opportunities abound throughout all seasons.

Granite Mountain Wilderness, the forest's only "urban" wilderness, is located just a few short miles from Prescott. Other scenic attractions include Thumb Butte, Lynx Lake and the Thumb Butte Loop, as well as drives to Palace Station and Crown King.  For more information, please contact the Bradshaw Ranger District.
