“This trail runs the entire length of the South Warner Wilderness.”— Bruce Hope
Wilderness permits are not required for day or overnight trips into this wilderness, but a free campfire permit is required if you use a camp or backpack stove, a charcoal barbecue, or build a campfire.
The most popular section of this trail is in the part that accesses Patterson Lake from Pepperdine Campground. Reaching the lake via the Pine Creek Trail #15E20 and a short section of the Summit Trail is also popular. Other parts of the Summit Trail are less frequented and will offer considerable solitude.
You may encounter cattle grazing here in the summer months, and this area is also popular with hunters from late summer into the winter.
