Your questions, comments, and corrections are welcome! The blog is meant to fill a gap, to provide information not provided by other websites related to the Granite Chief Wilderness, not meant to be comprehensive. So please use the links to explore other websites related to the wilderness.
There are some sources of information about the Granite Chief Wilderness online, but they are all missing something, so I’ll do my part to contribute those missing parts. Though I’ve spent a lot of time in the wilderness over the last six years, I’ve not (yet!) seen all of it.
The Granite Chief Wilderness was established in 1984 as part of the California Wilderness Act. It is about 25,000 acres, and almost entirely in the headwaters watershed of the Middle Fork of the American River (and the Rubicon River, which flows into the Middle Fork).
