The Brokeoff Mountains WSA is located in southern New Mexico, contiguous with the Guadalupe Mountains Wilderness in Texas. The WSA consists of a low dominant north-south ridge cut by two canyons that run 500 feet deep. Elk winter in the WSA and cliffs, ledges, and rock outcrops provide suitable nesting and perching habitat for birds of prey. Vegetation includes Chihuahuan Desert scrub, cacti, agaves, soaptree yuccas, creosote bush, mesquite, semidesert grassland, and pines at higher elevations.
