Sheephole Valley Wilderness Area
The Bureau of Land Management designated and manages the Sheephole Valley Wilderness Area which is within the mountain range and Mojave Trails National Monument. The 194,861-acre (approximate) Sheephole Valley Wilderness is a perfect representation of the basin and range topography typical in the Mojave Desert. The area consists of the northwest to southeast trending granitic boulder strewn Sheep Hole and Calumet Mountains, and is adjacent to the northern boundary of Joshua Tree National Park.
