Mount Logan Wilderness
The Mount Logan Wilderness is part of the 109 million acre National Wilderness Preservation System. This System of lands provides clean air, water, and habitat critical for rare and endangered plants and animals. In wilderness, you can enjoy challenging recreational activities like hiking, backpacking, climbing, kayaking, canoeing, rafting, horse packing, bird watching, stargazing, and extraordinary opportunities for solitude. You play an important role in helping to "secure for the American people of present and future generations the benefits of an enduring resource of wilderness"
as called for by the Congress of the United States through the Wilderness Act of 1964
. Please follow the requirements outlined below and use Leave No Trace techniques
when visiting the Mount Logan Wilderness to ensure protection of this unique area.
The ponderosa pine forest on and near Mt. Logan and Mt. Trumbull have been the scene of a ponderosa pine restoration project sponsored by the Arizona Strip District BLM, Arizona Game and Fish Department, and Northern Arizona University since 1996. Forest thinning and low-intensity fires have cleared the forest and dense undergrowth allowing a more natural ponderosa pine ecosystem to emerge. More mule deer and birds of all kinds have been observed since the restoration began.
