Area Description

The Cedar Ridge WSA has a 100-year woodcutting history and stumpage of pinyon pine and Utah juniper is evident throughout. It is one of only three woodland areas close to Elko. The east side of the ridge is severely eroded and gullied, while the west side is an uptilted deeply-dissected bench. Elevations range from 5,613 to 7,149 feet. There is no surface water.

This Wilderness Study Area is a component of the Bureau of Land Management's National Conservation Lands.
