North Mesquite Range >> Map #49
North Mesquite Mountains Wilderness
SIZE: 25,540 acres
LOCATION: San Bernardino County; 60 miles northeast of Baker, California
NATURAL RESOURCES: Rolling, brown foothills interspersed with a few steeper mountains comprise the north half of the Mesquite Mountains. A wide horseshoe shaped valley skirts these mountains on the west side of the wilderness. Joshua tree woodlands, yucca, cactus, blackbrush and grasses grow within the region, providing habitat for desert wildlife.
ACCESS: To access the southernmost point of the wilderness, take the Cima Road exit off Interstate 15 (26 miles east of Baker), and travel north approximately 8 miles on the paved Excelsior Mine Road until it intersects with the graveled Kingston Road. The wilderness lies between these two roads.
