      The South Warner Wilderness is over 70,000 acres of wild, primitive peaks and valleys waiting for you to come and explore.

      The area was designated as a Primitive Area in 1931 and became a wilderness by act of congress in 1964. Additional acreage was added in 1984 by the California Wilderness Act.

      The South Warner Wilderness lies in the eastern half of Modoc County at the extreme south end of the Warner Mountains. Wilderness elevations vary from 5,800 feet at Clear Lake to 9,892 feet at Eagle Peak.

      Three hikers and their dog enjoy the view from the Summit Trail. Seven peaks dominate the South Warner Wilderness. The most distinctive are Warren Peak at 9,710 feet in the north central section and Eagle Peak at 9,892 feet, presiding in the south central section of the wilderness. The massive cliffs rising dramatically behind Patterson Lake on the north side of Warren Peak are typical of the strikingly beautiful geography in this wilderness.

      The wilderness is surrounded by trailheads, campgrounds, corrals and staging areas that were designed for equestrians. There are also excellent facilities for hikers and backpackers to enjoy. With more than 80 miles of trails, hikers and equestrians can use them in combination to create through routes and loops.
