SHELLBACK WILDERNESS The Shellback Wilderness is in the Northeast White Pine Range. It is a long ridge reaching over 9000 feet. The west side has spring fed basins with aspen stands and linear limestone formations. The west is more arid with pinyon-juniper forests and some deep rocky canyons. The area is south of highway 50, one hour west of Ely.

WHITE PINE RANGE WILDERNESS The White Pine Wilderness is divided in three sections by rough roads open to motorized vehicles. Rocky ridges, rolling hills and varied vegetation can be experienced throughout the Wilderness. Many springs attract wildlife and mixed conifers can be found on the higher ridges. This area is on the western edge of the White Pine Range, just North of the Currant Mountain Wilderness. There are no trails within the area.

BALD MOUNTAIN WILDERNESS The Bald Mountain Wilderness is located on the eastern edge of the White Pine Range, with Ellison Creek bordering it on the south. It is a lower elevation range with rocky outcrops and unique box canyons in the lower elevations. As one gets higher, pinyon �� juniper forests give way to mountain sage, wildflowers and a high grassy (bald) peak at 8850ft. There are no system trails in this Wilderness area.
