The Indian Pass Wilderness is a 32,008-acre (130 km²) wilderness area under the jurisdiction of the Bureau of Land Management. The wilderness is found in the extreme southeastern part of the Chocolate Mountains, in the southeastern part of California, bordering the Colorado River in the Lower Colorado River Valley. It abuts the Little Picacho Wilderness to the south, and the Imperial National Wildlife Refuge is the eastern border on the Colorado River.

Quartz Peak at 2,200 feet (671 m) lies in the west of the wilderness; the center of the wilderness contains Julian Wash which drains eastwards into the Colorado and the Imperial Refuge, and gives the name "Julian Wash Country" to the wilderness.

Animals such as the Colorado River Toad, Desert Bighorn Sheep, and wild burro can be found in the region.
