Pahute Peak Wilderness


The Pahute Peak Wilderness (56,890 acres) is predominantly natural from its southern badland landscapes with colorful mineral deposits, to northern Big Mountain, a nearly flat topped mountain with steep slopes, aspen laden drainages, and mountain mahogany stands. Incredible unimpaired views can be seen from atop the dominant ridgeline through the middle of this wilderness, known as the North Black Rock Range. There are plenty of opportunities for solitude within the Pahute Peak Wilderness, especially near Big Mountain; stands of mountain mahogany and aspen provide ample vegetative screening. Please follow the regulations and practice Leave No Trace / TreadLightly! principles when visiting to protect the unique natural and experiential qualities of this special area. Motorized equipment and equipment used for mechanical transport are prohibited. This includes the use of motor vehicles (including OHVs), motorized equipment, bicycles, hang gliders, wagons, carts, portage wheels, and the landing of aircraft including helicopters. Contact the agency for more information about regulations.


The Wilderness is located in western Humboldt County. The best access to the Wilderness is located along the maintained Soldier Meadows Road that leads to roads that form the western boundary of the Wilderness.
