Manzana Creek Trail Professional Review and Guide
"San Rafael Wilderness was the first Wilderness Area set aside under the federal Wilerness Act of 1964. “San Rafael is rocky, rugged, wooded and lonely,” President Lyndon B. Johnson remarked when he signed the San Rafael Wilderness bill on March 21, 1968. “I believe it will enrich the spirit of America.” Manzana Creek Trail begins at NIRA, the major entry point for the San Rafael Wilderness. NIRA, an auto camp and popular day-use area, is an acronym for the National Industrial Recovery Act, a federal program launched during the Depression."
