Wild Areas in the South Region

Southern Region
From the floor of the Mojave Desert to the top of Mt. Charleston at over 11,000 feet this region offers an incredible diversity of wilderness resources. From great climbing in the LaMadre and Rainbow Mountains to the wonderful areas along the Colorado River, this region has it all including the archaeologically rich areas in the Gold Butte National Monument. The expansive Desert National Wildlife Refuge including the Sheep Range is under threat from the military and still needs wilderness protection.
