This Wilderness includes very steep terrain ranging in elevation from 800 feet near Lake Cushman to the 6,612 foot summit of Mt. Stone. Other major peaks include Mt. Skokomish 6,434', Henderson 6,000', Pershing 6,154', and Washington 6,255'. Barren ridges and numerous steep-faced rock outcrops are present throughout this Wilderness.
Stands of old-growth occur on the lower slopes consisting primarily of Douglas-fir, western hemlock and western red cedar. At the upper elevations, subalpine fir and western white pine give way to rock and scattered alpine vegetation commonly found in the subalpine and alpine zones.
The Hamma Hamma River is the only major stream flowing through the Wilderness. Mildred Lakes are a popular destination in the Wilderness.
