The Mokelumne Wilderness is located in the Eldorado, Stanislaus and Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forests on the upper western slope of the central Sierra Nevada Mountain Range and is just north of the Carson-Iceberg Wilderness. The Mokelumne River bisects remote mountainous terrain where elevations range from about 4,000 feet near Salt Springs Reservoir outside the southwest corner to over 10,000 feet on Round Top Peak in the north. Shallow valleys lying north of Mokelumne Peak (9,332 feet), in the southern portion of the area, hide many small lakes. The river canyon is extremely rugged and poison oak grows in profusion along the banks. In general, though, glaciers have smoothed the area, leaving the well-placed trails relatively easy to hike. In spring and summer, several large meadows scattered throughout the wild land bloom with a riot of wildflower color. You'll find stands of timber over much of this Wilderness. No fires are allowed above 8,000 feet, and in the Carson Pass Management Area including Winnemucca, Round Top, Fourth of July, and Emigrant Lakes, and on the north and east sides of Salt Springs Reservoir. The Raymond Peak area located in the eastern section, provides some spectacular scenery. By late summer, seasonal water courses are often dry. This 1 inch = 1 mile scale map shows 100 ft contour lines, shaded relief, forest cover, trails, roads, recreation opportunities, lakes, rivers and numerous survey points and boundaries. This map is to be used with the Eldorado, Stanislaus and Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest Motor Vehicle Use Maps (MVUMs). These MVUMs shows the National Forest System roads, National Forest System trails, and the areas on the National Forest System lands in the Eldorado, Stanislaus and Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forests that are designated for motor vehicle use pursuant to 36 CFR 212.51. National Forest road, trail and area users must comply with the MVUM, as well as Federal, State and local laws and regulations. Compliance with these rules is the responsibility of the user.
