Redfield Canyon is a narrow red-walled chasm suitable for hiking during the spring and fallseasons. Tall cliffs pocked with eroded caves and strewn with boulders, Redfield Canyonoffers the visitor a variety of recreational opportunities. Photographers can capture hiddencascades in the side canyons while casual visitors may occasionally find deep pools toenjoy. Located in the eastern part of the wilderness is the impressive Galiuro escarpment, an example of the fault-block development of the Basin and Range Province. Other small canyons containing perennial streams can be found in the area.
