Quick Reference

A general term used in North America for all parts of wildlands in which there are no permanent, improved, or maintained access roads or working facilities (such as lumber mills, ski resorts, or settlements with permanent residents). Any current uses of the area only have primitive facilities, such as cabins, base camps, or undeveloped campgrounds.
