Weekend Hikes: Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness

Montana and Idaho

GPS: 46°46'N 114°07'W

High in the Bitterroot Mountains, the raw granite pinnacles seen rising in every direction are so plentiful that many 9,000-footers (2,743 meters) go unnamed. Big Wild Adventures guides five-day explorations into the huge Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness on the Idaho-Montana border just southwest of Missoula, home turf to mountain goats, wolves, and the odd grizzly. "If you're looking for something every bit as rugged and spectacular as Glacier National Park minus the crowds, this is the place," says BWA co-owner Howie Wolke.
