The Million Hills Wilderness Study Area is part of the spectacular Gold Butte Region. Wide sand washes cut through the hills and alluvial slopes. The southern part is a tilted ridge made up of colorful folds. The ridge gives way to steep, rugged drainages and canyons with abundant rock outcrops along Azure Ridge and Million Hills. This area offers fantastic scenic vistas and secluded getaways. Wild burros can be found wandering here and much of the area has been identified as desert tortoise habitat.
Fantastic scenic vistas, secluded spots and geologic features entice hikers and photographers. Rock outcrops along Azure Ridge and Million Hills provide solitude.
