Great topic and comments.
Public input can be helpful in determining what is needed to protect and limit the impact on the wilderness.
The Wilderness Act of 1964 requires management of human-caused impacts and protection of the area’s wilderness character to insure that it is “unimpaired for the future use and enjoyment as wilderness. The Wilderness Act mandates opportunities for solitude or primitive recreation and that wilderness is a place that is in contrast with areas where people and their works are dominant.
We will see if that still holds true for the San Gorgonio Wilderness.
San Goronio Wilderness permits are still required for overnight camping!!!
