Effective May 24th, the Wilderness Information Center (WIC) in Marblemount will change hours of operations. Due to budgetary constraints the WIC will now be open 7 am-4pm daily through the summer season.
Permits are required for overnight stays in the backcountry. Walk up and reservation permits must be picked up in person during operating hours only. Self-issue permits are not available during the summer season.
Backcountry permits protect your wilderness experience and minimize the potential for overcrowding at camps or climbing routes, provide for opportunities for solitude, and protect natural and cultural resources so that all visitors – including future generations – can enjoy them. Permits also serve an important safety function in the event of an emergency or wildfire.
The Wilderness Information Center is the main backcountry permit office for the park complex. Wilderness rangers are on hand to provide trip planning advice for all wilderness and backcountry areas of the park.
