Mountain Wilderness Memorial Layout
Rows are designated by letters and increase from north to south, except for the Scattering sections, which increase from south to north. Plots are designated by numbers. Section names were provided by the owners, and block, row, and plot numbers were assigned by PPGS volunteers. Some rows aren't straight and locations are estimates, but the relative locations are close and should allow users of this database to find markers of interest.
