Warrior Stewardship Class 001
Four Peaks Wilderness, Arizona
October 17th - 20th, 2022
We can't wait to introduce Class 001 to the beautiful Arizona National Scenic Trail. This stewardship program will focus on the Four Peaks Wilderness area, part of the Mazatzal Mountains, located 40 miles east of Phoenix, Arizona.
Finding Purpose in the Four Peaks
CONNECTING TO THE LAND
Four Peaks Wilderness was established in 1984, and contains approximately 60,740 acres with a major mountain rising up in its center from the desert foothills. The Four Peaks themselves are visible for many miles, and are one of the most widely recognized landmarks in central Arizona.
Elevations range from 1,900 feet near Apache Lake to 7,600 feet on Brown's Peak.
"The view from Brown’s summit is certainly one to remember. One can see about 1/4th of the state of Arizona from the top; in fact, Mt. Humphrey’s in the crevasse of Flagstaff can be seen on a clear day.
A magnitude of diverse wildlife live among the Four Peaks wilderness. It’s particularly well-known for its dense black bear population. Additionally, there have been recorded sightings of ring-tailed cats, skunks, coyotes, deer, javelinas, and mountain lions." - discovergilacounty.com
FIRST NATION WARRIORS
When we step into the wilderness, we walk amongst the history these lands have beared witness to. It is important for our warriors to know and reflect on the protectors of the land that have come before them. We recognize their bravery, their hardships, and their dedication to the fierce protection of their families, tribe, and way of life.
Every new land we touch, we want to honor the ancestral warriors of these wild places. The areas surrounding the Four Peaks Wilderness were once the homelands of the Tonto Apache and Yavapai. We will steward lands where First Nation warriors spent time learning how to hunt, survive, and fight in the Mazatzal Mountains.
