Fir Canyon - Clark Mountain

Fir Canyon - Clark Mountain Professional Review and Guide

"This remote, seldom-visited hike leads into a cliff-bound canyon on the north slopes of Clark Mountain, where you can view the Mojave Desert’s largest stand of Rocky Mountain white fir trees. Clark Mountain, highest in Mojave National Preserve, is located in a detached unit of the preserve, lying north of I–15’s Cima exit, near Mountain Pass. This unit of the preserve contains about 30,000 acres, of which more than 10,000 acres have been designated wilderness. Clark Mountain, due to its rugged inaccessibility, is one of the wildest and most pristine mountains in the Mojave Desert. A sizable population of bighorn sheep make their home among the dolomite cliffs of the mountain, and on the north slopes there are approximately 1,000 Rocky Mountain white fir trees, the largest stand in the Mojave."
