The White Pine Wilderness is divided in three sections by rough roads open to motorized vehicles. Rocky ridges, rolling hills and varied vegetation can be experienced throughout the Wilderness. Many springs attract wildlife and mixed conifers can be found on the higher ridges. This area is on the West edge of the White pine Range, just North of the Currant Mountain Wilderness. There are no trails within the area, but a non motorized route goes through cathedral canyon on the north edge of the area.

Digital and paper maps are critical tools for wilderness visitors. Online maps can help you plan and prepare for your visit ahead of time. You can also carry digital maps with you on your GPS unit or other handheld GPS device. Having a paper map with you in the backcountry, as well as solid orienteering skills, however, ensures that you can still route-find in the event that your electronic device fails.
Motorized equipment and equipment used for mechanical transport is generally prohibited in all wilderness areas.
This includes the use of motor vehicles, motorboats, motorized equipment, bicycles, hang gliders, wagons, carts, portage wheels, and the landing of aircraft including helicopters.
