Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Here is an epic journey unlike any other in the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness. Over its nearly 50-mile distance along the Selway River, this mainline trail crosses two USFS ranger districts in two national forests, transecting some of the wildest remaining country in the contiguous United States.

At the Moose Creek Ranger Station, in the very heart of the wilderness, it is approximately 25 miles by trail to the nearest gravel road."

This hike was done in Feb. so we were on snowshoes. Had to snowmobile in to the trailhead and shoe it to the top. Beautiful views of Lolo peak and Squaw peak in the distance.
Hike time was about an hour one way and it was tough in some spots on the snowshoes.
