April 28, 2021 - Planning a backpacking trip this year? Reservations are required this year for all wilderness permits.
Beginning Friday, April 30, wilderness permits will not be available in the park. Normally, 40% of wilderness permits are available on a first-come, first-served basis at park wilderness centers. This year, these will be available by lottery two weeks in advance. You can apply 15 days in advance of your desired start date, with the lottery running 14 days in advance. Remaining reservations are available until four days before your wilderness trip.
