The United States Congress designated the Bald Mountain Wilderness (map
) in 2006 and it now has a total of 22,374 acres
All of this wilderness is located in Nevada
and is managed by the Forest Service.
The Bald Mountain Wilderness is located on the Eastern edge of the White Pine Range, with Ellison creek bordering it on the south. It is a lower elevation range with rocky outcrops and unique box canyons in the lower elevations. As one gets higher, Pinion - Juniper forests give way to mountain sage, wildflowers and a high grassy (bald) peak at 8850 ft. There are no system trails in this Wilderness area.
