The Hualapai Mountains, are a mountain range in Mohave County, near Kingman in Arizona. "Hualapai" means "People of the tall Pines" in the Hualapai language.The mountain range consists of five main peaks: Dean Peak, Getz Peak, Aspen Peak, and Hayden Peak overlooking the broad Hualapai Valley to the north toward Kingman; and the tallest, Hualapai Peak, on the south.Hiking trails reach Aspen and Hayden Peaks. Several areas, including Ghett's and Hayden Peaks, are home to radio transmitter/receiver towers.HabitatThe Hualapai Mountains are covered in pine trees, namely pinyon pine. Above 5500ft the ponderosa pine appear. Most pine trees are found on the cooler north facing slopes. The habitat is mainly forest, and has many natural springs.The ecology of the Hualapai Mountains is comparable to that of the San Bernardino Mountains and San Jacinto Mountains in southern California, with major forests of many conifer species, as well as aspen groves at higher elevations. The higher elevations of the Hualapai Mountains support Madrean Sky Islands habitats.Bear, elk, mule deer, mountain lion, javelina, and other animals can be found here. Mountain lion and bear have been drawn to civilized areas like Pinion Pines and Atherton Acres due to the large deer population. There are some animals only native to the Hualapai Mountain range, including a breed of ground squirrel, and tarantula.
