Highland Ridge Wilderness is a 68,627-acre (27,772 ha) wilderness area in the southern part of the Snake Range of White Pine County, just south of Great Basin National Park, in the U.S. state of Nevada. Located approximately 20 miles (32 km) south of the town of Baker, the Wilderness was designated in 2006 and is administered by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.

The topography of Highland Ridge Wilderness varies from gently sloping bajadas to rolling foothills to steep ridgelines. This variety of terrain provides excellent habitat for wildlife including mule deer, cougar, northern goshawk, and several species of bat. The pinyon and juniper-covered mountains, steep rocky ridges, and deep drainages provide contiguous protection to some of the basin lands that comprise much of this region of the state.
