We are located in Idaho
in the St. Joe National Forest on a special use permit from the
U.S. Forest Service. Vehicles are left at our base camp,
approximately 3 1/2 hours by car from Spokane, Washington or 2
1/2 hours from Missoula, Montana. The last ten miles are
a little "slow going," but any standard automobile can make the
trip quite safely. If you are flying, both Spokane and Missoula
have good airline schedules, and rental cars are available in
either city. We can aid you in lodging and transportation
planning, just let us know at the time of booking. Trips
begin at our base camp at 10 A.M. on the first day. We pack
out after lunch on the last day of the trip.
