Nampaweap/Witches Pool, AZ Field Trip

August 24, 2017


Notice: Tentative

One of the largest known rock art sites on the Arizona Strip is Nampaweap (Billy Goat Canyon). The site is 1/2 mile long and contains thousands of individual rock art elements on hundreds of boulders.

On the flank of Mt. Trumbull, a reliable water source holds much of the human history found on this plateau. This pool of seemingly permanent water is referred to variously as Witch Pool or Witches Pocket. Near the pool on the lava wall, a white cross has been painted onto the surface.

Important Note Regarding Registration to Participate in Field Trips

Due to limited group size and high demand, you must register to participate in field trips. Sign up begins one month prior to each trip at approximately 1:10 p.m. on each Friday at the conclusion of the Brown Bag lecture. Participants must provide their own vehicles and fuel.  Many trips will require a high clearance vehicle and four-wheel drive capacity. Lunch is provided by DASIA for a cost of $10 per person.

This schedule is subject to change based on weather, road conditions and safety considerations. Please contact the Public Lands Information Center for any schedule or location changes.

Reservations may be made by calling the Public Lands Information Center at 435-688-3200.
