Recreational Opportunities

Excellent opportunities to hike, fish, photography, view nature, star gazing, hunt big and small game, backpacking, ride horses, and/or disperse camp.

Climate and Special Equipment Needs

Best times to visit are spring and fall months for consistent weather. Roads to access wilderness area may become impassable during winter. Remember to bring lots of water regardless of season as there is little shade in the desert environment.
