Big Rocks Wilderness

General Location Maps Contacts Area Management Wilderness Laws Trip Planning Images

Recreational Opportunities

The topography of the area includes steep-sided mountains, several steep walled canyons, and a section of large jumbled boulders known as Mecca by the rock climbing community. Recreational opportunities include climbing, bouldering, camping, hiking, backpacking, horseback riding, and hunting. The entire area provides excellent opportunities for solitude among the boulder field, along the steep ridgeline, or within one of the canyons draining off of the mountain range.
