Wilderness Area Status
Lands with Wilderness Characteristics
Managing Agency: Bureau of Land Management
This wilderness would protect over 15,000 acres of pristine desert tortoise habitat comprised of mid to lower elevation Mojave Scrub. There are many places within this unit of deeply-dissected bajada where outstanding opportunities for solitude can be found. The heart of this area is characterized by dozens of deeply-braided outwash channels, some of them carved over 200 feet deep into the terrain. The large tracks of undisturbed Mojave scrub within this area are important to the Clark County Multi Species Habitat Conservation Plan’s sensitive species recovery. The bajada provides visitors with an opportunity to vanish into the vastness of a harsh desert environment and rewards them with spectacular views of the Virgin Mountains and Lake Mead National Recreation Area.
