Richland Creek Wilderness

Owner: Richland Creek Wilderness

Trailhead Location: At the junction of Hwys. 7, 123 and 16 (Pelsor), turn east on 16 to Ben Hur; then south about 1 1/2 miles to Forest Road 1205, keep on Forest Road 1205 for 10-12 miles to Richland Creek Campground located on the eastern edge of the wilderness area. Much of the wilderness is bounded by Forest Road 1205 offering many access points.

Description: 11,800 acres featuring waterfalls, bluffs, clear, flowing streams and rugged terrain. This wilderness area is one of the most scenic places in the entire United States; however, it does receive a great deal of use so all visitors must be extra cautious to “leave no trace.”
