The Pahroc Range is the dominant mountain range bounding the broader Pahranagat Valley.It is divided into two parts: Pahroc North and Pahroc South.

For our purposes, Pahroc South includes Eight Mile Valley and the Delamar Dry Lake areas and features the South Pahroc Range Wilderness. Pahroc North includes Six Mile Flat and the Pahroc Summit: it features the Big Rocks Wilderness.

The reason “Pah” figures so frequently in place names in this region reflects the importance of water “Pah” is the Paiute name for water. Hence we have Pahroc, Pahranagat, Pahrump, Tonopah, and so on.
