is a charming desert town along the well-traveled highway US 60/US 93 between Phoenix
, with a compact center containing several dozen historic buildings, the earliest (Trinidad House) dating from 1863. The town adjoins the usually dry Hassayampa River
, tributaries of which form scenic canyons in the Wickenburg Mountains to the east, but most of the surroundings are low desert plains. The only other approach to Wickenburg is from the west (US 60), from Quartzsite
on I-10. Sites of interest nearby include Lake Pleasant
, the ghost town of Constellation
and the Tres Alamos Wilderness
