Activities in the wilderness include backpacking, bird watching, camping, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, stargazing, and wildlife viewing.
Guided tours are generally offered during the summer season. Due to concerns surrounding COVID-19 transmission, tours will not be offered at this time.
Please note that the tour begins at the cliff dwellings, approximately one-half mile from the Gila Cliff Dwelling trailhead. Give yourself time to hike up the trail (15-30 minutes) to be at the program on time.
Other tours, programs, and special events may be offered depending upon staff availability. Check the website calendar, visit the official Facebook page and calendar, or call the Gila Visitor Center at 575-536-9461 for the latest information.
