Wilderness areas are places where natural processes take precedent; areas managed so that nature remains substantially unchanged by human use. Rugged trails provide the only access into wilderness, and travel is restricted to foot or horseback.

Wilderness is the raw material out of which man has hammered the artifact called civilization.
- Aldo Leopold
