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.

Perfect for packing and hiking references, fishing lakes, creeks, high altitude camp sites, horse packing routes, or extended backpacking adventures. Map Scale = 1″ to mile; Printed on waterproof plastic paper. Updated in 2011. ISBN# 9781593515188

2022 UPDATE: Most of this National Forest has been devastated by recent wildfires. Much of the forest in between Bucks Lake and Oroville is now totally toast. That’s a whopping 50 mile stretch, hence 318,935 acres. Expect campground closures, damaged trails and heavy logging activity. Charred forests also exist all the way around Indian Valley and Lake Almanor, and along Highway 70, east of Quincy, CA
