Designated Wilderness Area
Managing Agency: Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management
The Rainbow Mountain Wilderness is home to the gorgeous sandstone escarpments, rugged canyons and linestone peaks that draw 1.3 million visitors to Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area each year.
Located west of Las Vegas, Rainbow Mountain Wilderness is part of the Spring Mountains complex, which also includes the LaMadre and Mt. Charleston Wilderness Study Areas.
As housing growth eats up open space and forces wildlife to compete for habitat, more human residents are venturing into the hills to explore the bounty of this backyard wild country.
This wilderness is a component of the Bureau of Land Management's National Conservation Lands.
