Red Rock Country boasts three federally designated
wilderness areas, totaling over 124,000 acres. The Red Rock-Secret
Mountain, Sycamore Canyon, and Munds Mountain Wilderness Areas are
marked by colorful cliffs and soaring pinnacles, dry desert, thick
pinon-juniper forests, and lush riparian areas. They are also home
to many species of mammals, birds, and reptiles such as: black bears,
mountain lions, ringtail cats, canyon wrens, and rattlesnakes. These
vast wilderness areas offer unique opportunities for physical challenge,
solitude, photography, nature study, and communion with the natural
Wilderness areas are truly wild places. The
pristine beauty, abundant and diverse plants and animals, and unaltered
landscapes that characterize these wild places are both fragile
and hostile and must be treated with great care and respect. Wilderness
is remote, primitive, and inaccessible to motor vehicles, so help
may be far away. Before venturing into the wilderness, be aware
of all natural hazards: Know Before You Go!
Backpacking is permitted in the wilderness areas.
In Red Rock - Secret Mountain Wilderness and Munds Mountain Wilderness,
hikers must be in at least one mile from the trailhead before camping.
In Sycamore Canyon Wilderness camping and camp fires are prohibited
at and down stream of Parsons Springs.
Many Red Rock Country trails enter federally
designated wilderness areas. Mountain bikes, are prohibited in these
areas. Please respect the primitive character of these protected
places and the experiences of others: Do Not Bike In Wilderness!
Desert vegetation is fragile and easily damaged
by traveling through previously undisturbed areas. Off-trail travel
is harmful to vegetation and causes soil erosion, particularly on
slopes. Keep your National Forest green: Remain On Designated Trails!
