List of LCRV Wilderness Areas (Colorado River)


List of LCRV Wilderness Areas (Colorado River)

This is a list of adjoining wilderness areas for the "Lower Colorado River Valley". The List of "Lower Colorado River Valley" Wilderness Areas (Colorado River) is separated into the west side of the Colorado River: California-Nevada–and the east side of the Colorado River: for Arizona.

West-bank, East-bank wilderness areas

The numbered "Mountain ranges" abut the Colorado River proper, and are somewhat arbitrary. (Though the river flows north to south, a few ranges are East–West, or Northwest–Southeast, per the original Basin and Range faulting.)

The western route parallelling the Colorado River, covers more plains, of the Colorado Desert/Mojave Desert, rising to, and down from various "mountain passes", (for example south of Needles, California(the Sacramento Mountains (California)), or Searchlight, Nevada). Washes-(no rivers), drain from the west into the Lower Colorado River, south from Lake Mead-Hoover Dam.
