Area Description

Becky Peak lies just across Steptoe Valley from Goshute Canyon. It is another of White Pine Countys 10,000 foot giants that can be seen from a hundred miles away. North-facing slopes hold snow well, offering the exploratory skier a chance for first descents, while summertime activities run the gamut from basic hikes to guided hunt trips. With easy access from highway 93, Becky Beck is an ideal place to stretch the legs after too many hours behind the wheel.

This wilderness is a component of the Bureau of Land Management's National Conservation Lands.
