The intrinsic values and amenities of wilderness depend on the degree to which it remains undeveloped and free. Wilderness areas are to be kept in a wild and natural state, relatively free of human influence and control, while at the same time providing for human use and enjoyment.

To help ensure that wilderness remains intact as part of the forest landscape, the RP maintains information for the care, use, and restoration of wilderness areas.
