The United States Congress designated the White Rock Range Wilderness (map
) in 2004 and it now has a total of 24,249 acres
All of this wilderness is located in Nevada
and is managed by the Bureau of Land Management.
The White Rock Wilderness is a lightly visited pristine mountain range with gently rolling foothills covered in sagebrush, pinyon pine and juniper, and scattered ponderosa pines. Numerous side canyons and drainages dissect the north-south trending range while a high, windswept plateau covered with aspens and pockets of white fir lies toward the northern end of the area and stretches toward the 9,146 foot White Rock Peak.
