Herd Management Areas

Take along a pair of binoculars for viewing. Be patient! You could get the opportunity of a lifetime to see bands of wild horses in their natural environment.

A few suggestions before you venture out: Enjoy viewing the horses, but do not attempt to chase them. Motorized travel is restricted to open roads. Access roads are recommended for high clearance vehicles and during dry weather only. Remember, "pack it in, pack it out" is the standard rule to follow. Camp at least 200 feet from a water source. Drinking water, waste, or disposal facilities will not be available.
