Bill Williams Mountain

Bill Williams Mountain

Bill Williams Mountain is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 9,259ft (2.822m) above the sea level, located south of Williams, in Coconino County, in Arizona, USA. It's one of the highest mountain roads of Arizona.

The road to the summit, located within the Kaibab National Forest is gravel and rocky. It’s impassable in winters. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. 4x4 required. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. At the summit there’s a manned lookout tower and numerous communications equipment. It is named for Old Bill Williams, a scout, guide, and mountain man, who lived in the 1800s. Visitors should be prepared for high altitude conditions. Summertime temperatures average 70 degrees but can drop as low as 30 degrees at night or during the frequent summer afternoon thunderstorms. High winds frequently occur.
