Located in the east of California, the Desolation Wilderness sprawls across both sides of the Sierra Nevada to the west of Lake Tahoe. It encompasses 63,960 acres of land jointly managed by the Eldorado National Forest and Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit (LTBMU).
The Desolation Wilderness is noted for its breathtaking alpine scenery, granite outcrops, glacial lakes, and valleys. Hikers and horseback riders are welcome to explore the area through miles of fantastic trails including sections of the Pacific Crest and Tahoe Rim Trails.
