  • The Wilderness is the area North of CA Hwy 78. This area is only open to hiking, not to motor vehicles of any kind like the area to the south of the highway. Access in the winter may still require an Imperial Sand Dune permit, as there is nowhere to park your vehicle without one. For a quick stop, the parking lot at Osborne overlook has three spaces you can park for up to two hours without a permit.
