The United States Congress designated the Magic Mountain Wilderness (map
) in 2009 and it now has a total of 11,938 acres
All of this wilderness is located in California
and is managed by the Forest Service.
The Magic Mountain Wilderness' chaparral covered hillsides and oak-studded canyons provide scenic vistas and recreational opportunities for the rapidly urbanizing Santa Clarita Valley. The Magic Mountain Wilderness lies within the newly designated San Gabriel Mountains National Monument. It also provides suitable habitat for the California condor. There are no officially designated trails that exist within this wilderness.
