Situated 20 miles from the nearest paved road and including the northern end of the Hot Creek Range, the Antelope Range Wilderness Study Area encompasses over 80,000 acres of wild and remote country. Diverse topography, vegetation, and wildlife characterize this extensive area. Important archaeological sites can be found within the WSA including Shoshone Indian wickiups and the James Wild Horse Trap, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Wilderness designation will help protect the archaeological as well as the wild attributes of this beautiful country.
This Wilderness Study Area is a component of the Bureau of Land Management's National Conservation Lands.
