The Devil's Staircase Wilderness is a forested wilderness area adjacent to the Umpqua River in the Southern Oregon Coast Range of the U.S. state of Oregon. It was officially designated in March 2019.[1]

The wilderness is one of a handful of federally protected old-growth forest stands in the Oregon Coast Range, others being the Drift Creek Wilderness, the Rock Creek Wilderness, and the Cummins Creek Wilderness, all of which were established in 1984.[2][3][4]
