The United States Congress designated the White Pine Range Wilderness (map
) in 2006 and it now has a total of 40,024 acres
All of this wilderness is located in Nevada
and is managed by the Forest Service.
The White Pine Range Wilderness is bordered by
the Currant Mountain Wilderness
to the south.
The White Pine Wilderness is divided in three sections by rough roads open to motorized vehicles. Rocky ridges, rolling hills and varied vegetation can be experienced throughout the Wilderness. Many springs attract wildlife and mixed conifers can be found on the higher ridges. This area is on the West edge of the White pine Range, just North of the Currant Mountain Wilderness. There are no trails within the area, but a non motorized route goes through cathedral canyon on the north edge of the area.
