Lands With Wilderness Character

Below is a list of Lands With Wilderness Characteristics. These are wild areas on Nevada's public lands that have been identified as having wilderness characteristics--are at least 5,000 acres, offer opportunities for outstanding solitude, primitive recreation, and appear natural.  Other features are important as well, such as wildlife habitat, archeological values, native plants, water, etc.  The information on these pages is only preliminary, however. Boundaries have not been finalized, and work still needs to be done to assess how well these areas work with the needs of locals and other stakeholders.
