Ansel Adams Wilderness Map

Ansel Adams Map USDA


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.

PCT hikes

If you must hike only ONE SECTION of the PCT, then this one stretch, LE CONTE to LAKE TAHOE, is by far the best for high altitude, granite, peaks, passes, total alpine lake bliss, with incredible mountain scenery. When you must limit your big adventure trek, due to time constraints, this portion is some of the most beautiful high elevation terrain in the whole darn nation. Seriously. Better than a movie!

Services like grocery, laundromats, hotels, restaurants, post office, available in SLT (South Lake Tahoe). Postal, food & lodging can be had in numerous locations along certain high country routes – like Vermillion Resort @ Lake Edison. The PCT guide books give good descriptions of these handy trailheads with services, in way more detail.
