Bright Star Wilderness Map

This wilderness surrounds Kelso Peak to the north, south and east. To the west, the Kelso Mountain system is contiguous with the Piute Mountain Range in the Sequoia National Forest. The upper slopes of the 5,000 foot Kelso Peak are dotted with pinyon pine and juniper trees, intervening slopes are brushy with large granite rock outcroppings, and the boulder-strewn valley supports dense stands of Joshua trees. The entire wilderness is included within the BLM Jawbone-Butterbredt Area of Critical Environmental Concern, an area set aside for cultural and wildlife values.
