Little Jacks Creek

Little Jacks Creek was designated a Wilderness Area by Congress in 2009 and spans over 50,000 acres! Visitors to this area can expect to see basalt canyons rising above narrow winding streams, sagebrush and grasses, and a variety of wildlife including deer, grouse, and quail. An abundance of recreational opportunities are possible in Little Jacks Creek and are most enjoyable from September through  mid-November when the weather is cooler. Be prepared for creek crossings and watch for poison ivy.
