The jagged mountains and gently sloping alluvial plain of Beaver Dam Mountains Wilderness straddle the Arizona-Utah border. Management of the Wilderness is shared by the BLM in both states. It is further divided into northeastern and southwestern units by Cedar Pockets Road. South of Beaver Dam lies Paiute Wilderness, which is separated from Beaver Dam Mountains Wilderness by the corridor of Interstate 15 Joshua trees, desert shrubs, and scattered grasses are the primary vegetation. Several rare plant species have also been identified here. Notable wildlife include desert bighorn sheep, the endangered desert tortoise, and large numbers of raptors. The woundfin minnow and Virgin River chub, endangered species, live in the Virgin River, which flows through the eastern section of Beaver Dam Mountains Wilderness for approximately 6 miles. River rafters and kayakers have been increasingly attracted to the Virgin River, but water levels can be too low for this form of travel in the fall and winter. Spring runoff and summer thunderstorms can create whitewater rafting and kayaking experiences in this area. Backpacking in the Wilderness has seen a substantial increase in recent years. There are no trails, so hone your cross-country skills before heading out.

Very nice place to go. You are able to find trails from super easy to advanced. I drove two hours to get here and it was worth the drive. If you are able to get to the very top at the radio tower I recommend bringing food and folding chairs because it's a beautiful view that you will want to enjoy for a while.

The road is well marked off Old Hwy 91, but as I continued and came upon forks in the road, I saw no road signs as to where I should go. After about 11 miles, I gave up and returned back to Hwy 91. A lot of this area had burned in the recent past, and many of the Joshua Trees have died in the fire.

You can make it in a vehicle with clearance. It was steep at times and the road has suffered from wash outs and slides, but all in all, it was fun with amazing scenery.

Great panoramic view at the top! Just spectacular. Not a super challenging drive, you'll need 4wd, but we made it up with a stock Ford Explorer - and the trail was mostly covered with snow - I would say most 4wds with any sort of ground clearance can make the journey. The trail is pretty steep at times, with some sharp switchbacks, but if you've done any 4-wheeling, you'll be fine. Have fun!
