Overview

With the stroke of a pen, 74 desert wilderness areas were created in the California Desert Protection Act of 1994. Much of this land is roadless and trailless.

Large sections are devoted to the expanded Joshua Tree and Death Valley national parks (both upgraded from national monuments by the act), the new Mojave National Preserve and the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park.
