Sylvania Mountains Wilderness

SIZE: 17,820 acres

LOCATION: Inyo County; 30 miles east of Bishop, California

NATURAL RESOURCES: Sitting near the California-Nevada border, the terrain within the Sylvania Mountains Wilderness starts on the desert floor. Gradually rolling hills the western boundary give way to rough and mountainous rock rising to nearly 8,000 feet on the eastern boundary. Sagebrush scrub grows at the lower elevations and pinyon-juniper pine thrive along the mountain peaks. The Last Chance Range, Piper Mountain and Fish Lake Valley can all be viewed from this wilderness, providing a sense of vastness. Desert bighorn sheep roam this area, which is also home to deer and chuckar.

GLOSSARY >
