New Water Mountains Wilderness
Yuma Field Office 7341 E. 30th St., Suite A Yuma, AZ 85365
The New Water Mountains Wilderness Area is located east of Quartzsite, just south of I-10 and just north of the Kofa National Wildlife Refuge in La Paz county.
The western boundary of the Wilderness can be accessed from I-10 at the Gold Nugget Road exit (#26). Taking the exit for State Route 60 (#31) and then turning right onto Ramsey Mine Road gives access to the northern boundary.
Due to infrequent maintenance and the wide range of road conditions that you might encounter, it is strongly recommended that high-clearance, four-wheel-drive vehicles are used for access to the Wilderness boundary.
