The United States Congress designated the Little Jacks Creek Wilderness (map
) in 2009 and it now has a total of 50,930 acres
All of this wilderness is located in Idaho
and is managed by the Bureau of Land Management.
The Little Jacks Creek Wilderness is bordered by
the Big Jacks Creek Wilderness
to the southeast.
The Little Jacks Creek Wilderness includes a basalt dome covered by sagebrush and grass. Magnificent 1,000-foot canyons tower over meandering creeks that provide outstanding high-desert scenery, solitude and many recreational opportunities best enjoyed from September through mid-November. The perennial streams and dense riparian vegetation attracts mule deer, sage grouse and mountain quail.
