Recreational Opportunities

Motors and bicycles are banned from this million-acre expanse of treeless plateaus and dense forests sheltering black and grizzly bears. If you do go into these woods today, consider hiring a guide. Outfitters licensed by the National Forest Service carry liability insurance and know their way around the forest trails, high meadows and ridgelines.

If you prefer not to tackle a trip on your own, many commercial outfitters and guides lead trips into the wilderness, under permit by the Forest Service."
