Mt Stirling WSA

The Mt. Stirling Wilderness Study Area is the redheaded step child of the Spring Mountains; I don't think a lot of folks even know it is there. If you want a high quality wilderness experience and you don't mind a little bit of bushwhacking then Stirling is the place for you. You won't find a network of trails instead you'll have to rely on your own route finding skills. The canyons are rugged and steep, the PJ forest is thick in places,but the rewards are huge. Mt Stirling is the Wild side of the Springs.
