The Newberry Mountains Wilderness, 26,102 acres, 15 miles east of Barstow, California is noted for its rugged volcanic mountains and deep, maze-like canyons. Topography ranges from 2,200 feet in the north to 5,100 feet in the south.
The unique desert features are the result of ancient volcanic activity.
Desert bighorn sheep have historically traveled this area, and prairie
falcons and golden eagles stop here to forage and rest. Spring
wildflower displays are likely along the west boundary.
