Funeral Mountains Wilderness

SIZE: 28,110 acres

LOCATION: Inyo County; 3 miles northwest of Death Valley Junction, California

NATURAL RESOURCES: Amargosa Desert alluvial slopes ascend into the Funeral Mountains. Rugged and colorful bands of limestone rock lay to rest any images conjured up by the Funeral Mountains, for which this wilderness area is named. Elevations range from 2,200 feet and rise 4,950 feet to the summit of Bat Mountain. Capped at nearly 7,000 feet, Pyramid Peak and the western boundary of this wilderness lie within Death Valley National Park. Desert bighorn sheep have been seen near these peaks.

GLOSSARY > alluvial fan, limestone

ACCESS: Access this wilderness area from State Highway 127 or 190.
