Wovoka WildernessWilderness Areas on the Forest

The Forest manages 24 designated wilderness areas, which encompass over 1.3 million acres. These wilderness areas are as diverse as the Forest itself and make up nearly one-fourth of the Forest’s acreage. Managing the wilderness resource is part of the Forest’s multiple use mission to ensure these areas remain unimpaired for future use and enjoyment.
