Arrow Canyon Wilderness


The Arrow Canyon Wilderness now contains a total of 27,530 acres and is managed by the Bureau of Land Management. All of the Wilderness is in the state of Nevada. In 2002 the Arrow Canyon Wilderness became part of the now over 109 million acre National Wilderness Preservation System. In wilderness, you can enjoy challenging recreational activities and extraordinary opportunities for solitude. In an age of "...increasing population, accompanied by expanding settlement and growing mechanization,..." you play an important role in helping to " for the American people of present and future generations the benefits of an enduring resource of wilderness" as called for by Congress in the Wilderness Act of 1964.

The peaks of the Wilderness can be accessed from US Highway 93. Park off the highway and walk in, or drive one of two 4WD roads in about a mile further. There are no trailheads. Arrow Canyon may be accessed by driving state Highway 168 east from Interstate 15 approximately 11 miles. Look for a ranch sign titled "Arrow Canyon Ranch." Drive under the sign and keep right on the gravel road avoiding the house (a private residence - please respect their privacy) to a fenced in municipal well. If you have 4WD you may continue approximately 1.5 miles to the wilderness boundary where you will find a vehicle barricade and parking area. If you don't have 4WD, park at the well.
