Mount of the Holy Cross in the Holy Cross Wilderness, White River National Forest, ColoradoIn 1964, the Congress of the United States took a far-sighted action by passing the Wilderness Act, legally designating certain federal lands as Wilderness. Congress preserved these lands to assure that an increasing population, accompanied by expanding settlement and growing mechanization does not occupy and modify all areas within the United States and its possessions, leaving no lands designated for preservation and protection in their natural condition. The Wilderness Act prohibits roads, mining, timber cutting, and motorized vehicles in these areas.
