Wilderness Areas in Nevada

Nevada is home to 69 wilderness areas covering over 3.4 million acres and over 5,300 square miles.

Click here to learn more about the wilderness areas in the southwest.

Since most of the wilderness areas span multiple counties we have organized them by the larger area they are located within instead of organizing them by county.

As we explore each area, we will be adding links for you to learn more about each area.
