Santa Rosa Ranger District

The Santa Rosa Ranger District landscape is comprised of mountains and plateaus with elevations ranging from 5,000 feet to 9,732 feet at Granite Peak in the Santa Rosa Range. Large aspen stands, mountain mahogany, sagebrush, mountain brush, forbs, and native grasses populate the District’s high desert mountain landscape. The landscape is characteristic of much of the basin and range country of northern Nevada with its quietly spectacular rugged granitic rock formations and wide, sweeping basins.
