Wilderness Study Areas (WSAs) inspire us. They remain some of the last great open places and rugged canyons in the west, where animals have the freedom to roam and the vistas stretch on for miles. The Prineville BLM manages some 217,000 acres of WSAs. South Fork and Sand Hollow are two pieces in a complex of WSAs that tie together an expansive landscape integral to sage grouse, pronghorn antelope, and mule deer in Central Oregon.
Permanently protected as part of the original Wilderness Act in 1964, Mount Washington is the ultimate "rocks and ice" wilderness as lava flows cover a large part of this area. Hike around Patjens Lakes and take in several views of Mount Washington along the way.
