Ansel Adams Wilderness, part of Inyo NF and Sierra NF

This High Sierra terrain spans some of the most majestic areas of the Sierra Nevada – the youngest mountain range in the U.S. This wilderness is bordered by National Parks, National Forests, and other Wilderness Areas – all the way around it. Kaiser Wilderness and Lake Edison inside Sierra NF on the west, Yosemite National Park on the north, Inyo NF on the east side, and John Muir Wilderness on the south end. Wow!

This 230,300 acre, high elevation wilderness was formerly the Minarets Wilderness, renamed in 1984 to honor the pioneering landscape photographer, Ansel Adams. Known for spectacular alpine scenery, elevations range from 7,000 to 14,000 feet. Rugged granite peaks and passes, with alpine lakes, includes high country east of the Sierra crest. Pacific Crest Trail and John Muir Trail cross this High Sierra Wilderness region.

This USDA map is also available at Ranger Stations.

Granite slopes trail hike to Merced Lake

Highest peak in Yosemite National Park with the best granite scenery and alpine lakes, forests, wildlife and of course, epic views around every bend. Horseback or hiking trails are the only way to enjoy this amazing place. But please remember that it is often buried in deep snow more than half the year, so you only get a few months (summer) to enjoy this landscape and hike the best trails in the Sierra.
