  • Motorized equipment, or mechanized transportation is prohibited, including motorcycles, chain saws, bicycles or carts. Wheelchairs are exempt.
  • Group size is limited to 12 people and/or livestock combined.
  • Camping and campfires are prohibited within 100’ feet (or more if posted) of all lakes, streams and trails to protect water quality, sensitive vegetation and to help assure solitude. Thin soils and mountain vegetation are easily damaged by fire and fires scar rocks and soil. Use a stove, a fire pan or an existing fire ring when and where fires are allowed.
  • Pets must be under control at all times.
  • Stock must not be hobbled, tethered or picketed within 100’ (or more if posted) feet of any lakes, streams or trails. This protects fragile vegetation and keeps lakes and streams clean.
  • Certified weed-free forage is required on all public land. Only pelletized or steam-rolled feed grains, or certified weed-free hay, straw, or mulch are allowed.
  • Do not store equipment, personal property or supplies within the wilderness for more than 14 days within a 30-day period, including time the area was used for camping.
