“WILDERNESS???”

Ranked #10 of 18 things to do in Dillon
Attraction details
Reviewed 15 April 2013

Not sure why this is called a wilderness area, especially since it has been mined, timbered and lived on for well over 120 years. Roads cut through all parts of this "wilderness" area, and most of the local residents like it that way. People living in New York and Washington D.C. may think this largely unpopulated area is wilderness, and want to shut if off for all locals, but it is not wilderness. It is home to local residents for horseback riding, 4-wheeling, snowmobiling, hiking, fishing, and hunting. It is a beautiful area, but it is not wilderness. Ranchers have been driving their cows into this forest since the 1870's.
