Camping and hiking are two ways people enjoy the beauty and solitude of the monument’s backcountry. Public lands throughout the monument are open for camping.

Before you begin exploring, take time to plan your trip; make sure you have the proper equipment. All hiking is on unmarked routes. The terrain is rugged and requires bushwacking through dense brush in some areas.
