Mount Stirling

Wilderness Study Area - Nevada

The Mount Stirling Wilderness Study Area is a land of canyons and ridges with heavy forest cover. This rugged landscape provides challenging routes for hikers. Its peaks offer scenic vistas of the surrounding valleys. Located west of Las Vegas, it is part of the Spring Mountains complex, which also includes the La Madre Mountain Wilderness and Mount Charleston Wilderness. Paleozoic marine fossiliferous formations, two large petroglyph sites and remnants of a pine nut milling site provide a look at geologic and cultural history. Three charcoal kilns are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
