Access – Roads

There are several ways to enter the Golden Trout Wilderness and most of them will take you right to a trailhead. Others may require several miles of hiking before you get into the wilderness. Below is a list of roads and their current status for the season. These are kept up to date as often as possible. However, please call the appropriate Forest/Park prior to leaving on a trip to be sure by clicking HERE (scroll to bottom of page).
