SRW Boundary SignWhen planning your trip to the Sandwich Range, please keep in mind that many trails are within the Sandwich Range Wilderness, where the following rules apply:

USFS Designated Wilderness Restrictions

   >>  No motorized equipment or  mechanized transport, such as bicycles.

    >> Hiking and camping group size must be no larger than 10 people.

Contrary to recent information, there is no prohibition on camping within 200 feet of trails in the Sandwich Range Wilderness.  However, the WODC strongly urges all backcountry users to follow Leave No Trace guidelines at all times.

Also see the WMNF hiking information page, which includes the latest Backcountry Camping Rules.

Important:  Camp Heermance, Shehadi, and Rich have been removed by the USFS.  Click here for complete information.
