AMERICA'S WILDERNESS - A SHORT VIDEO IN HONOR OF THE WILDERNESS ACT OF 1964.

The Carson-Iceberg, Emigrant, and Mokelumne Wildernesses offer outstanding hiking, backpacking, and horseback riding opportunities in a natural setting largely undisturbed by modern development. Each year, over 40,000 people visit Stanislaus wilderness areas. Although any single person may not leave much of a mark on wilderness, the cumulative impact of tens of thousands of visits can cause serious degradation of this national resource. To help preserve the wild character of these places, the Forest Service enforces Wilderness Permits & Regulations and strongly recommends that all visitors follow simple Leave-No-Trace methods.

 


Wilderness Permits are required for overnight visits and can be obtained at any Stanislaus National Forest Office. Click here for office hours. 

Call up to three days in advance to have a permit left in the after-hours pick-up box.
