Be prepared to be self-sufficient with water, food, shelter, GPS, maps, and recovery tools and skills. There are NO services in these remote areas. Cell phone reception is rare.

    Unless driving through on a county, state or federal highway, you must have prior written permission to be on tribal, military, state trust, or private land…even when crossing to get to public lands.
