Area Management

The Muggins Mountain Wilderness is part of the 110 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 Muggins Mountain Wilderness to ensure protection of this unique area.

There are no developed trails, visitor facilities, or permanent water sources within the Wilderness. A wildlife water catchment is located in the Wilderness about ½ mile from the southeast boundary. A visitor register and informational display is located near the beginning of the Muggins Wash nonwilderness corridor.
