The United States Congress designated the Pine Forest Range Wilderness (map
) in 2014 and it now has a total of 24,015 acres
All of this wilderness is located in Nevada
and is managed by the Bureau of Land Management.
Just north of the Black Rock Desert, the Pine Forest Range Wilderness offers a diverse landscape of rolling slopes of sagebrush, dense stands of aspen and otherworldly clusters of rock formations. This unique mountain range whose peaks rise over 9,000 feet has long been a destination for hunters, anglers, and outdoor enthusiasts. It boasts the only alpine lakes in the region and is habitat for rainbow trout, sage grouse, chukar, and big game wildlife including mule deer, pronghorn antelope and bighorn sheep.
