How to Enjoy the Gila National Forest in Spring   

Explore the Gila Wilderness on Horseback   

Exploring the Gila Wilderness in the springtime is magical. Each day, you’ll head out on horseback to explore a world awakening from winter. Cottonwood and Alder trees begin to blossom while the animals adapt for the warmer months ahead. As you amble through the wilderness and canyon trails with your wrangler, look for the eagle perched by Wall Lake (before he flies north mid-April) and the free-range cattle welcoming new calves to the world! The Gila has no shortage of wildlife. You may spot various bird species, mule deer, elk, coyote, javelina, or even a turkey or two. Don’t be surprised if these unique creatures appear perfectly poised for a brilliant photograph! 

If that’s not enough to make you fall in love with this untouched paradise, maybe the area’s glistening waters will be. During trail rides, you’ll have the opportunity to stop and enjoy a refreshing dip in the warm spring-fed crystal-clear creeks of the Gila. One trail ride will even have you crossing Taylor Creek over five dozen times! With the perfect spring weather this an opportunity you don’t want to miss!
