Gila National Forest Every National Forest offers its own unique beauty. The Gila's beauty is in its diversity of rugged mountains, deep canyons, meadows, and semi-desert country. It is one of the more remote and least developed National Forests in the southwest. Covering 3.3 million acres of publicly owned forest and range land, the Forest is the sixth largest National Forest in the continental United States. Elevations range from 4,200 to 10,900 feet and cover four of the six life zones. Flora and fauna are diverse. Ocotillo and cactus are found in the lower elevations, and juniper, pine, aspen, and spruce-fir forests are plentiful in the high mountains. The diverse topography, elevations, and climatic conditions on the Gila National Forest create a diversity of landforms and plant and animal habitats. Several federally listed threatened and endangered species occur on the forest. Federally listed species include the Mexican Spotted Owl, Southwestern Willow Flycatcher, Chiricahua leopard frog, Mexican gray wolf, Gila trout, loach minnow, spikedace, Gila chub, and Chihuahua chub. The Gila National Forest supports a diverse mammalian, bird, amphibian, reptile, and fish fauna. Important game species include mule deer, Coues whitetail deer, elk, Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep, pronghorn, mountain lions, and black bears. Over 330 species of resident and breeding birds have been documented on the Forest. Historically, seventeen species of fish occurred in the three major basins on the Forest. Fourteen of these species are currently extant and three species have been extirpated. Fifteen of the seventeen species that historically occurred on the Forest are either federally listed as threatened or endangered or are considered regionally sensitive. The Forest boasts a rich history of the Mogollon and Apache Indians, Spaniards, Mexicans, ranchers, prospectors and miners. Apache Chiefs Mangas Coloradas, Geronimo, and Victorio; conservationist, ecologist and author of the Sand County Almanac Aldo Leopold; and renowned lion hunter Ben Lilly are but a few of the personalities from the past that have left their mark in the Gila. Another unique beauty of the Gila National Forest is its wilderness. The Gila, Aldo Leopold, and Blue Range Wildernesses offer unparalleled hiking and horseback riding. The 558,065-acre Gila Wilderness, created in June 1924 at the urging of the great conservation pioneer Aldo Leopold, was the world's first designated wilderness. The Wilderness areas on the Gila comprise a vast, roadless realm astride the Black, Mogollon, Diablo, and Blue mountain ranges, varying from grassland foothills upward through juniper woodland, ponderosa pine, and then spruce-fir forests on the high peaks. Mountain meadows, aspen glades, and spruce forests border on narrow, rock-walled canyons which in some places plunge to depths of more than a thousand feet. The San Francisco, Gila, and Mimbres Rivers, the Catwalk, Pueblo Park Campground, Gila Cliff Dwellings, Mogollon Baldy, Castle Rock, Eagle Peak Mountain, Emory Pass, and the Burro Mountains are among the many islands of beauty on the Gila.
