Juniper Mesa Wilderness

Juniper Mesa Wilderness

The northern slopes of Juniper Mesa Wilderness are covered in Ponderosa pine and alligator juniper while the southern slopes tend more to the Utah juniper and pinion pine side of things.

The Forest Service says there are seven maintained trails (15 miles worth) in Juniper Mesa Wilderness but maintenance and signage seem to be short... Springs are real iffy on this property and there are no perennial streams. You might find mule deer, bobcat, black bear, elk and Abert's squirrel, though. The biggest users of the property: hunters and equestrians.
