Columns of colorful stone are the most striking landscape features of Tres Alamos, a Wilderness in the southern Black Mountains. The landscape tops out at Sawyer Peak (4,293 feet), the highest point in the Black Mountains. The eastern portion of the area contains the Blacks' scenic ridgelines, canyons, and washes, while the western side consists of lower desert bajadas (slopes) and plains. On the bajadas and hills you'll find saguaro and paloverde. Joshua trees and creosote bushes dot the plains, and mesquite and acacia line the washes. The Gila monster lives here in seclusion, and prairie falcons and golden eagles rule the skies. Although there are no established trails, the area is suitable for hiking and camping. Horsepackers sometimes journey through.
