The Summit Trail, accessed by a trailhead at Singas Creek on the east side, runs south along the east side of the range below Singas Peak, crossing through several drainages before climbing over the top of the range to connect with the Buffalo Canyon Trail. NOTE: Singas Peak is not an actual USGS named peak, it is a benchmark location atop the crest of the Santa Range, south of Paradise Peak with an elevation of 9415 feet.
The East Side Trail, accessed from the Singas Creek Trail runs north below Paradise and Santa Rosa peaks and connects with the Big Cotton Cottonwood Canyon Trail, which climbs over the range to connect with the Rebel Creek Trail. Most of the East Side Trail is outside of the Wilderness proper, running parallel a few hundred feet below the boundary.
The Horse Creek Trail, accessible from the west side, climbs up into a large circular canyon immediatle north of Paradise Peak.
The two-mile McConnell Creek Trail rewards hikers with stunning views of Santa Rosa Peak. From the end of this trail the strongest and most skilled hikers can scale Santa Rosa Peak.
The Rebel Creek Trail is a gradual 4-mile climb to the top ridge of the range. From this vantage point, one can see the near vertical, crescent shaped rim of Santa Rosa Peak which is with windswept limber pine growing at the tree line. From here, hikers and packers can follow the trail over to the east side of the range and drop into the headwaters of Big Cottonwood Creek.
The Buffalo Canyon Trail, accessed from the west side, climbs through rock outcroppings for 4.5 miles to join the Summit Trail at the top of the range.
The Falls Canyon Trail passes a 30-foot waterfall about one-half mile before ending in at the head of a deep canyon 1.5 miles into the Wilderness.
