Area Description

East Humboldt Additions are comprised of several separate areas contiguous with existing wilderness. If designated, the additions would increase the size of the wilderness by 3,065 acres. The proposed additions include:
East Humboldt - Trout Creek (03-01)  —  1,824 acres
East Humboldt - Angel Lake (03-03)  —  1,000 acres
East Humboldt - Checkers East (03-07)  —  241 acres

Because these proposed additions are contiguous with and would be incorporated into existing wilderness, any of the individual areas can be smaller than the usual 5,000 acre minimum for independent wilderness areas.
