Riding Into Wilderness

In recognition of the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act, BLM-Utah’s intrepid adventure crew recently set out on a unique backpacking trip in southwestern Utah.

Their mission:
Gain vital perspective and knowledge, and interview a broad range of user groups while hiking through some of the most pristine, undeveloped lands in our nation.

Exploring two of the hairiest, yet accessible wildernesses in southwest Utah, the crew looks to familiarize public land users with Utah wilderness, garnering a sense of enlightenment with regard to the many great uses and benefits these places provide, along with the precautions and etiquette necessary for traveling in such primitive areas.

Ranging from red rock deserts to folded and swirling geologic cliffs, to deep river canyons; the BLM manages 18 wilderness areas in Utah, encompassing a total of 260,400 acres. These areas are special places, essentially undisturbed by human activities, and ranging in size from the 32 acre Taylor Creek Wilderness to the 99,400 acre Cedar Mountain Wilderness.

Please join us in celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act. Discover Wilderness and Put the WILD back into your life!

The BLM manages nearly 22.9 million acres of public lands in Utah, representing about 42 percent of the state. Located mostly in western and southeastern Utah, these lands are varied, ranging from rolling uplands to sprawling desert lowlands. Utah’s public lands feature some of the most spectacular scenery in the world, from the snow-capped peaks of remote mountain ranges to colorful red-rock canyons.

The BLM’s first national monument is also located on public lands in Utah. Situated in beautiful red-rock country, the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument encompasses nearly 1.9 million acres in the south-central part of the state. The area offers a unique combination of archaeological, historical, paleontological, geological, and biological resources.

BLM Utah manages public lands for a variety of uses. These lands not only provide minerals, energy, and livestock forage, but also natural, historical and cultural resources that the agency is charged with protecting. In addition, Utah’s public lands offer incomparable opportunities to experience solitude and enjoy outdoor recreation.
