Workman Creek is a watercourse in the Salome Wilderness in central Arizona, United States.

Natural history[edit]

The oldest exposed rock forms in the general area are Ruinite granite, which dates to 1400 million years before present.[1] The watershed holds a diverse flora and fauna. Within this part of the Sierra Ancha Range there are notable disjunctive populations of Coastal woodfern, Dryopteris arguta; this fern is otherwise common in areas nearer the Pacific coast.[2]
