It encompasses approximately 17,862 acres of public land and is located in the east-central portion of the Sand Springs Valley Watershed (#204).
The Worthington Mountains extend along the east boundary of the allotment. The Worthington Mountain Wilderness Area is located in the east half of the allotment.
