The Wilderness Permits page has more information about the two types of wilderness permits below:

The wilderness self-issue permit is required for areas within the Three Sisters Wilderness and Mt. Jefferson Wilderness, and for all visits into the Mt. Washington Wilderness. A permit is necessary for each group entering the wilderness. Self-issue permits are free and available at all wilderness trailheads.

A Limited Entry Permit is required for overnight and day visits to the Obsidian Area in the Three Sisters Wilderness and the Pamelia Area in the Mt. Jefferson Wilderness. Advance reservations of Limited Entry Area permits are available at www.recreation.gov or by calling 1-877-444-6777.
