Marble Mountains Wilderness
The Marble Mountains Wilderness is one of California's oldest designated wilderness area and fourth largest, which is located in the Klamath National Forest and east of the Scott Valley area. It comprises 242,000 acres with Boulder Peak, 8299 feet at its highest point in the wilderness. The Marbles has 100 lakes, of which 82 are named lakes. Originally established in 1931 as the Marble Mountain Primitive Area, it was reclassified as Wilderness in 1953. The Marbles then became one of the original wildernesses in the National Wilderness Preservation System, established by the Wilderness Act of 1964.
