The Emigrant Wilderness is located in the Stanislaus National Forest on the upper western slope of the central Sierra Nevada Mountain Range and is contiguous with the Yosemite Wilderness to it's south, the Carson-Iceberg Wilderness just to the north, and the Hoover Wilderness to the east. The Emigrant Wilderness is a glaciated landscape of great scenic beauty featuring broad expanses of granite peaks and domes, lava-capped peaks, alpine lakes, mountain streams, and deep canyons. The northeastern third of the Wilderness is dominated by volcanic ridges and peaks; the remaining areas consist of many sparsely vegetated, granitic ridges interspersed with numerous lakes and meadows. Over 200 miles of designated trails lie within the Emigrant Wilderness including a section of the Pacific Crest Trail on the eastern edge of the wilderness. Elevations range from below 5000 feet near Cherry Reservoir to 11,570 feet at Leavitt Peak. Precipitation averages 50 inches annually, 80 percent of it in the form of snow. Snowpacks typically linger into June, sometimes later following very wet winters. Summers are generally dry and mild, but afternoon thundershowers occur periodically and nighttime temperatures could dip below freezing anytime. 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 Stanislaus National Forest Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM). The MVUM shows the National Forest System roads, National Forest System trails, and the areas on the National Forest System lands in the Stanislaus National Forest 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.
