Mystic Mountain is located within the Sloan Canyon National Conservation Area (NCA).  Its neighboring peaks are Sutor Peak and Black Mountain, both also located within the Sloan Canyon NCA.

Administered by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Sloan Canyon NCA is home to the famed Sloan Petroglyph Site which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  Archaeologists believe that there are more than 300 rock art panels with 1,700 design elements on the Site which were created by the native cultures between the Archaic to historic eras.

Sloan Canyon National Conservation Area is 48,438 acres of scenic and geologic features and extraordinary culture resources located just south of the big city of Las Vegas.  The North McCullough Wilderness area is located with the Sloan Canyon National Conservation Area.  Standard wilderness area rules apply. Mechanized/motorized travel is not allowed (including bikes).
