Shellback Wilderness is a 36,143-acre (14,627 ha) wilderness area in western White Pine County, in the U.S. state of Nevada. The Wilderness lies within the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest and is therefore administered by the U.S. Forest Service.
Located just north of the Bald Mountain and White Pine Range Wilderness Areas, the Shellback Wilderness was created by the White Pine County Conservation, Recreation and Development Act of 2006. Moorman Ridge dominates the skyline at 9,052 feet (2,759 m). The western slope of the Wilderness contains several springs and lush vegetation, whereas the eastern slope is much more arid.
