    The wilderness system preserves the wildest of our wild lands with the highest level of government protection. Today, the National Wilderness Preservation System includes more than million acres of protected wilderness areas for all Americans to enjoy. Most U.S. wilderness areas are in national forests, but the largest amount of wilderness land is administered by the National Park Service. The largest contiguous wilderness complex in the United States is the Noatak and Gates of the Arctic Wildernesses in Alaska at 12,, acres (5,, ha). The largest wilderness area outside Alaska is the Death Valley Wilderness in southeastern.

    6. Rocky Mountain National Park Wilderness, Colorado. The Rocky Mountain National Park Wilderness was designated in It contains more than miles of trails for hikers, backpackers and horseback riders to savor all year long. Snowshoers and cross-country skiers find tranquil meadows and forests in the winter months. The U.S. Air Force is proposing up to 10, F fighter jet "sorties" a year over the Gila and Aldo Leopold Wildernesses and Gila National Forest in southern New Mexico. The area’s wild character would no doubt be harmed by the invasion and noise of these countless military overflights, including those just feet above the ground, and.

      Research has found that human-caused noise can detract from the quality of the visitor experience in national parks and related areas. Moreover, impacts to the visitor experience can be managed by formulating indicators and standards of quality as suggested in park and outdoor recreation management frameworks, such as Visitor Experience and Resource Protection (VERP), as developed .   Wilderness Watch has just released a new, detailed analysis of the Wilderness provisions found in the so-called “Utah Public Lands Initiative Act,” which was introduced in Congress on July 14 by Utah Republican Reps Rob Bishop and Jason Chaffetz. The day before the bill was released, E & E Publishing wrote this story, which contains some more background information.

Hartmann, William J. Makel, Robin T. Harrison and United States. As was reported to the U.S. Congress in the "Report on the Effects of Aircraft Overflights on the National Park System," a system-wide survey of park visitors revealed that nearly as many visitors come to national parks to enjoy the natural soundscape (91 percent) as come to view the scenery (93 percent).

Noise can also distract visitors from. A taking of airspace above private property may result from frequent low flights of aircraft that substantially interfere with the practical use and enjoyment of the property.

[41] Noise, vibrations, and airplane pollutants unaccompanied by an actual physical invasion of the airspace immediately over the property owner’s land may also. The National Parks Overflights Act of (Public Law ) required the US National Park Service to complete a report to the US Congress on the effects of overflights (especially low-level overflights by military aircraft and commercial overflights relative to tourism) on the National Park System.

The Wilderness Act of established the National Wilderness Preservation System, a national network of more than federally-designated wilderness areas.

These wilderness areas are managed by the National Park Service, Bureau of Land Management, US Fish and Wildlife Service, and US Forest Service. The Forest Management Acts of, and (Organic Act) (16 U.S.C., ) require the Forest Service to protect the National Forest System including designated wilderness areas, which are a part of that system from fire and other depredations.

The authority to regulate and monitor wilderness derives from these acts. Over the next five years all Forest Service Wildernesses are slated to complete this process, with 20% of wildernesses establishing baselines each year. A nationally based Wilderness Character Monitoring central team was established to complete high-complexity, low-frequency tasks to reduce the burden on local units.U.S.
