Rock Creek Wilderness

Description:

The Rock Creek Wilderness now contains a total of 7,486 acres and is managed by the Forest Service. All of the Wilderness is in the state of Oregon. In 1984 the Rock Creek Wilderness became part of the now over 109 million acre National Wilderness Preservation System. In wilderness, you can enjoy challenging recreational activities and extraordinary opportunities for solitude. In an age of "...increasing population, accompanied by expanding settlement and growing mechanization,..." you play an important role in helping to "...secure for the American people of present and future generations the benefits of an enduring resource of wilderness" as called for by Congress in the Wilderness Act of 1964.
