Most of Mokelumne Wilderness doesn't require a permit. The only exception is the section near Carson Pass which requires one. Most of the trails are unmaintained. You can enter off state routes 4 and 88 as well as Blue Lakes Road (need 4WD for the last option, I think). Another place you may be interested in is Carson Iceberg Wilderness. You do need a permit, but there are no quotas and you can self-register at most trailheads and ranger stations. You can enter off state routes 4 and 108 and U.S. 395.

I just got back from a 3day in Jennie Lakes Wilderness and while no permit (other than a fire permit) was needed, the sign at JO pass (the border of Sequoia) stated that wilderness permits were required within the park.

Just an old musician who loves the Mountains.
