Mount Massive Wilderness

Description:

The Mount Massive Wilderness now contains a total of 30,540 acres and is managed by the Fish & Wildlife Service and the Forest Service. All of the Wilderness is in the state of Colorado. In 1980 the Mount Massive Wilderness became part of the now over 110 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. Please follow the regulations in place for this area, and use Leave No Trace techniques when visiting to ensure protection of its unique natural and experiential qualities.Regulations:Motorized equipment and equipment used for mechanical transport are generally prohibited on all federal lands designated as wilderness. This includes the use of motor vehicles (including OHVs), motorboats, motorized equipment, bicycles, hang gliders, wagons, carts, portage wheels, and the landing of aircraft including helicopters, unless provided for in specific legislation. In a few areas some exceptions allowing the use of motorized equipment or mechanical transport are described in the special regulations in effect for a specific area. Contact the agency for more information about regulations.Contact Information:LEADVILLE NATIONAL FISH HATCHERY2844 Highway 300Leadville, CO 80461Phone: 719-486-0189LEADVILLE RANGER DISTRICT810 FRONT STREETLEADVILLE, CO 80461Phone: 719-486-0749
