White Mountains

The White Mountains Wilderness is a wilderness area in the White Mountains of California, United States. It was established by Congress in 2009 with a total of 228,454 acres (924.52 km2). The wilderness is largely managed by the Inyo National Forest, with 24,162 acres (9,778 ha) managed by the Bureau of Land Management. The wilderness covers the White Mountains along the eastern boundary of California, from Boundary Peak in the north, south almost to Bishop. The wilderness includes White Mountain Peak, but excludes the roads to the south of the peak. Signs placed at the entrance of the wilderness near the trail to White Mountain Peak were initially misspelled "White Mountain Wilderness", the name of another wilderness area in New Mexico.
