This region includes Carpenter Canyon, Trout Canyon and Wheeler Springs Pass, all accessible from Pahrump. The mountains provide a forested, spring-fed oasis in the Mojave Deser, a haven for wildlife, a cool retreat for visitors, a storehouse of forest resources, and a vital watershed fed by numerous springs. Charleston Peak is the corn jewel of the mountain range–rising to 11,918 feet; the only peak in southern nevada that rises above timberline.

In the summer explore historic sites and enjoy hunting, mountain bike riding, packpacking, horseback riding, rock climbing, and primitive camping.
