BLM OR Wilderness Characteristics Polygon Hub

Metadata Updated: February 9, 2024

WLD_CHAR_POLY: This theme represents the results of an inventory of wilderness characteristics found, or not found, on BLM lands in Oregon and Washington. This data set shows the polygons for areas found to possess wilderness characteristics, plus polygons for those areas that were intensively inventoried and found to not meet minimum wilderness criteria. All BLM lands outside of designated Wilderness Areas and Wilderness Study Areas are periodically evaluated for wilderness characteristics based on meeting minimum criteria for size, naturalness and outstanding opportunities for solitude or primitive and unconfined recreation. Where such inventories have been updated, those BLM lands not depicted by polygons were deemed to clearly lack wilderness characteristics in an initial scan of size and roadlessness to determine areas warranting more intensive inventory.
