The Desolation Wilderness is one of the most visited backcountry areas in California. Because of its proximity to the Bay Area and Sacramento and its easily accessible trailheads, this entry to the Desolation Wilderness is always highly tra?cked, so much so that there are daily quotas for overnight camping.
Day hikers are asked to register at the trailhead or at a US Forest Service visitor center at no charge; overnight campers must pay to secure a permit. A good place to do that online is here: tinyurl.com/dwovernightcamping.
