Have you ever just wanted to get away and experience complete solitude?  Gila County has several places were you can go to do just that. 

 

Due to the areas WILD topography, over thousands of years small channels and canyons have been carved out by the many streams and rivers that flow year round. These canyons offer a break from the mundane giving the adventurous soul a chance to "Get away from it all"

 

Every babble of the stream has its own sound. When it rushes over exposed rock layers or burrows under a pile of fallen trees it seems to speak in many moods.  During your exploration you will marvel at mother natures patience and how she has slowly over time created a remarkable canvas of cobalt blue water, trees, chiseled canyon walls and small pools - perfect for swimming, fishing or just relaxing.  Get away to Gila County and Explore the Wild!
