Summary

The 5,800-acre North Santa Teresa Wilderness is located about 25 miles west of Safford, Arizona in Graham County.
The geologic landmark known as the Black Rock rises nearly 1,000 feet from its base while the remainder of this mile-long rhyolitic plug is encircled by cliffs of several hundred feet. To this day, the rock holds spiritual significance for local Native Americans as well as a mystique for visitors. Jackson Mountain rises to 5,890 feet southeast of the rock and is dissected by several canyons. The majority of this sister to the boulder-strewn Forest Service Santa Teresa Wilderness consists of desert and mountain shrub, grassland and riparian vegetation."
