    that's right, you can't even "mountain bike" in those areas! I thought that in true wilderness areas they even demolish any sign of the past human habitation and get rid of all the roads, hence the "roadless area" thing.

    The only thing they haven't been able to do yet is change the history books concerning those areas..

    oh, wait... nevermind.

    Designated Wilderness areas Do Not Allow Any Motorized or Mechanical Vehicles At Any Time. Ever. So you can hunt that Elk, but you will have to drag him out by hand.

    The Government is at it again

    By Juliet Eilperin - With little fanfare, Congress has embarked on a push to protect as many as a dozen pristine areas this year in places ranging from the glacier-fed streams of the Wild Sky Wilderness here to West Virginia's Monongahela National Forest. By the end of the year, conservation experts predict, this drive could place as much as 2 million acres of unspoiled land under federal control, a total that rivals the wilderness acreage set aside by Congress over the previous five years.
    A confluence of factors is driving this wilderness renaissance: the shift in Congress from Republican to Democratic control; environmentalists' decision to take a more pragmatic approach in which they enlist local support for their proposals by making concessions to opposing interests; and some communities' recognition that intact ecosystems can often offer a greater economic payoff than extractive industries.
