Jumbo Springs Wilderness

General Location Maps Contacts Area Management Wilderness Laws Trip Planning Images


The Jumbo Springs Wilderness lies in a remote corner of southern Nevada approximately 50 air miles east of Las Vegas, beyond the Overton Arm of Lake Mead just west of the state line. The borders of Jumbo Springs Wilderness follow rocky cliffs and hillsides south and east of Jumbo Peak and Jumbo Springs.

Dirt roads of varying conditions provide access to this wilderness from Devil’s Cove Road to the east and Scanlon Ferry Road to the west. To access these roads, drive south from Interstate 15 on State Route 170/Riverside Road. After crossing the Virgin River, turn west onto New Gold Butte Road. After about 38 miles, Devil’s Cove Road splits south off of New Gold Butte Road, following Cottonwood Wash. To access the wilderness from the west, continue about 8 miles further on New Gold Butte Road from Devil’s Cove Road, then take Scanlon Ferry Road south along Gregg Wash.
