Eagle Cap Wilderness Permits

All wilderness visitors to the Eagle Cap Wilderness must also obtain a Wilderness Visitor Permit before entering the area. Only one permit is required per group and there is no fee for the permits. The information gathered from each permit assist forest wilderness staff to study use trends, evaluate high use destination areas, and learn more about wilderness visitors.

Where to Get a Wilderness Permit

Registration and Permit boxes are located at each trailhead near the information board. The permits are self-issued. After filling out the form, place the trailhead copy of the permit in the registration box and carry the visitor portion with you while in the wilderness. It is helpful to have the permit tied to a backpack or saddlebags where Wilderness Rangers can see them.
