Wild Areas in the Northwest Region

Northwest Region
Home of the Black Rock Desert and High Rock Canyon wilderness complex and National Conservation Area, this is also where the Burning Man celebration occurs. The Black Rock Desert Wilderness is Nevada’s largest wilderness at over 300,000 acres. This Northwest Region also contains critical and outstanding wild lands lying just beyond the suburban areas of western Nevada. Many areas in this region still need protection such as the Tule Peak, Petersen Mountain, Rawe Peak, Poodle Mountain and Wall Canyon.
