Wilderness Permits Reservation Window

Wilderness permit reservations are available 24 weeks (168 days) in advance. The table below indicates the first day you can request a reservation for the start date of your trip.

The lottery deadline is at 7:30 am Pacific time on the day faxes are processed (third column). You should receive an email with your lottery results within 24 hours of the processing date. The daily lottery is processed prior to phone reservations, so it is best to submit requests for popular trails by fax, not by phone.
