- Full-color map and legend on one side

This beautiful full-color topo map includes more than 100 miles of hiking trails in the Idaho portion of the Selkirk Mountains, from the Canadian border on the north to Bonner County on the south.
The map features a “baker’s dozen” of selected hikes with descriptions and directions, but is a good supplement to the Keokee guide book Trails of the Wild Selkirks, with its detailed descriptions of 170 trails in the American portion of the Selkirks. The map also includes information about the flora and fauna of this incredible landscape, conservation history, “Leave No Trace” principles and a list of helpful resources.

ICL has been working to protect Idaho’s backcountry, wildlife, water and quality of life since 1973, and is the oldest statewide environmental group in Idaho. ICL’s headquarters are in Boise, with field offices in Sandpoint and Ketchum.
