The Little Jacks Creek Wilderness includes a basalt dome covered by sagebrush and grass. Elevations range form 3,500 to nearly 5,900 feet in this Wilderness and magnificent 1,000-foot canyons tower over meandering creeks that provide outstanding high-desert scenery, solitude and many recreational opportunities. The perennial streams and dense riparian vegetation attracts mule deer, sage grouse and mountain quail. Temperatures...best enjoyed from September through mid-November.
