Paiute Wilderness is located in extreme northwestern Arizona approximately 15 miles southeast of Mesquite, Nevada and 40 miles south of St. George, Utah, as the crow flies. The northern half of this wilderness is outside Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument on Arizona Strip District BLM-administered land while the southern half of the wilderness is within this monument, designated by Presidential proclamation in 2000. Access can be obtained from Mesquite, Nevada south through Lime Kiln Canyon on rugged dirt roads and from St. George, Utah south via Quail Hill Road and Wolf Hole Valley. These routes may be impassable during winter because of snow accumulation and wet roads. The portion of the route from St. George, Utah across Black Rock Mountain is closed during the winter. Services or facilities are only available in nearby communities (St. George, Beaver Dam and Mesquite). Maps and information can be obtained from the St. George Interagency Visitor's Center, 345 East Riverside Drive, St. George, Utah (435-688-3200).
