The United States Congress designated the Weepah Spring Wilderness (map
) in 2004 and it now has a total of 51,305 acres
All of this wilderness is located in Nevada
and is managed by the Bureau of Land Management.
The Weepah Spring Wilderness is an excellent unspoiled example of mountain ranges representative of the Great Basin. It lacks a single defined ridgeline. The complex geology of the area forms a confused landscape: isolated peaks, maze-like canyons, walls of fossil bearing rocks, natural arches and odd volcanic hoodoos. Add to this the oddity of the largest stand of ponderosa pine in eastern Nevada and with 4,000 year old rock art.
