Austin-Tonopah Ranger District

Linear chains of mountains, separated by long valleys, stretch north-to-south across central Nevada forming the Austin-Tonopah Ranger District’s rocky-mountainous terrain. In the lower elevations, the valleys vary from lush fertile fields to barren playas created from evaporated minerals such as salt. Elevations on the District range from approximately 5,000 feet on the valley floor to 11,941 feet at Mount Jefferson’s South Summit, the highest peak located in the Alta Toquima Wilderness area.
