The Selway River Trail is an absolute favorite. The terrain is welcoming without being aggressive, and the scenery is simply stunning. The Selway is one of the bigger rivers that you can hike along, providing nice open views of mountains.
We’ll meet up at 8:30 AM PST at the Kooskia Weigh Station where highways 12 and 13 meet just outside Kooskia, ID. We can carpool and caravan from there to the trailhead at Race Creek Campground on the Selway Road. Our goal will be to get on trail at about 10:00 AM. Feel free to meet us at either location.
Early June, the waters will probably be cold and high, but it will still feel good to wade out into them. We also have one good creek crossing about 2 miles in, so maybe bring water shoes or sandals.
The plan will be to hike in 4 or 5 miles, have lunch on a beach, then hike back out. This mid-week hike is for all you Trekkers who fill up your weekends with work and other activities!
