1. Selway - Bitterroot Wilderness Marker
Inscription.  Over one and one-half centuries have passed since Lewis and Clark crossed the Bitterroot Mountains. This country was then a vast, challenging wilderness.

Immediately across the river from you, at this point, is the Selway – Bitterroot Wilderness. Its primitive character is suggestive of much of the land in the days of the Lewis and Clark expedition. Here the challenge and beauty of a wilderness experience awaits you and future generations. On foot or horseback you have an opportunity to see, as did Lewis and Clark, a fresh, unaltered land.

The one-million acre Selway – Bitterroot Wilderness was classified in 1963 by the Secretary of Agriculture and is administrated by the United States Forest Service.
 
Erected by U.S. Forest Service - Clearwater National Forest.
