Two miles to the south visitors will find access to the Fossil Ridge Wilderness Area. Hikers and equestrians can enjoy the trails of this pristine natural area. (No mechanized or motorized vehicles are permitted in any Wilderness Area.) To the east of Lottis Creek Campground four-wheel drivers will find a plethora of roads to explore. Cumberland Pass Road provides access to most of these trails.
