Description

This portion of Cedar Roughs is managed by the Federal Bureau of Land Management and was established in 2006. In total, the Cedar Roughs Wilderness provides over 6,350 acres of non-motorized recreational activities including hiking, hunting, fishing, primitive camping, and wildlife viewing. Primitive camping is best experienced October to May.

The Cedar Roughs Wilderness is home to the world’s largest, genetically pure stand of Sargent cypress, however due to the remote nature of the area, there isn’t an established trail to the stand. There are multiple access points to the park; you can get there off Pope Canyon Road, via Old Pope Canyon Road and Maxwell Creek, and via Lake Berryessa and Pope Creek- but none are well marked. Historically, a number of hot spring resorts were located in and around Cedar Roughs, but none remain today.
