Weekend Hikemaster's Handbook
Most of the areas the troop hikes in require Wilderness Permits. Since there are usually quotas on these permits, it is important that the location be chosen early enough to insure that the permits can be obtained. The first available date you can apply for a Wilderness Permit varies from trailhead to trailhead and year to year. Check with the appropriate ranger station. See the Reservations page of our website for the latest reservation information.
You will be sent a wilderness permit by mail.
California fire permits are required for campfires and stoves outside of established car campgrounds. These permits are free and good for one calendar year (January 1 to December 31). Pick one up at a ranger station early in the year and keep it in your wallet.
