ABOUT THE DISTRICTS:

Moose Creek Ranger District
The Moose Creek Ranger District encompasses approximately 800,000
acres, including 560,000 acres of the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness.
The Moose Creek Ranger District is administered from the historic Fenn
Ranger Station, located 5 miles south of Lowell, Idaho, on the Selway
River. At the heart of the District is the historic Moose Creek
Ranger Station, located in the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness above the
confluence of Moose Creek and the Selway River.

The natural resources on the District are unique and diverse. The
Selway River and its tributaries are considered aquatic strongholds
for both anadromous and inland fish, including salmon, steelhead, bull
trout, and west slope cutthroat trout. Terrestrial wildlife
populations include elk, black bear, mountain lion, mule and whitetail
deer, bighorn sheep, mountain goats, martens, wolverines, lynx,
fishers, and wolves, among others. Vegetation ranges from high alpine
meadows with whitebark pine to the unique coastal Western Red Cedar
communities along the breaklands.

Approximately 10 permanent employees are supplemented during the
summer months with 20 to 30 seasonal employees and multiple
volunteers.

Lochsa Ranger District
The Lochsa District is situated in the Upper Clearwater Valley of
Idaho County and encompasses approximately 360,000 acres, including
69,000 acres of the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness.

The Lochsa District administers the Middle Fork Clearwater Wild and
Scenic River System (including the Lochsa and Selway Rivers), known
for its Blue Ribbon fishing. A portion of the Selway-Bitterroot
Wilderness and the longest undisturbed section of the Lewis & Clark
National Historic Trail in the nation is also managed by the district.
The district manages the unique Lochsa Historical Ranger Station and
Visitor Center, campgrounds and picnic areas, including the largest
campground on the Clearwater National Forest–Wilderness Gateway with
89 units. Special uses include commercial outfitting (river floating,
hunting and pack trips). In addition, commercial grazing and minerals
activities occur.

The Lochsa District organization is currently composed of
approximately 20 permanent employees, about the 20-30 seasonal
employees, and multiple volunteers. Lochsa District Staff and
personnel are located at offices in Kooskia and Kamiah and at work
centers in Pierce and Musselshell Meadows.

Powell Ranger District
The Powell Ranger District sits nestled in the Lochsa River canyon of
Northern Idaho at 3,400 feet elevation. Year-round precipitation
averages around 40 inches, with rain and snow from the first part of
October through mid-June. Summers are mild with warm days and cool
nights; temperatures rarely get over 100 degrees. Summer
thunderstorms bring rain and severe lightning storms. The District is
comprised of roughly 500,000 acres, with nearly 191,000 acres in the
Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness. Natural Resource management activities
center around wildlife & fisheries, timber management, stewardship,
Wilderness, and recreation.

The District and surrounding areas are rich in outdoor recreation
opportunities. Offering more than 500 miles of trails and camping
sites are plentiful from developed campground to undeveloped sites.

The Powell area is also rich in history and archaeology. Powell
itself is located on one of the camping sites used by the Lewis and
Clark Expedition on their westward journey. History buffs can retrace
the Lewis and Clark route via Forest Road #500, the Lolo Motorway,
which closely follows the original Lewis and Clark Trail. US Highway
12 parallels the Lochsa River and winds through this nationally
designated Wild and Scenic River corridor, one of the most scenic
drives in America.

The Powell Ranger District organization is currently composed of
approximately 10 permanent employees who are supplemented during the
summer months with 30 to 40 seasonal employees and multiple
volunteers.

Fenn Ranger Station is located 5 miles south of Lowell, Idaho which

whitewater rafting resort, two motels and two restaurants, and a
general store. The nearest full-service community is Kooskia

approximately 740 feet, and the climate is very mild. Lewis and Clark
State College and Walla Walla Community College (branch campus) are
located in the communities. The total population for the two
communities is over 40,000 people, so opportunities for recreation,
dining, and shopping are plentiful.

Gila National Forest
Every National Forest offers its own unique beauty. The Gila’s beauty
is in its diversity of rugged mountains, deep canyons, meadows, and
semi-desert country. It is one of the more remote and least
developed National Forests in the southwest. Covering 3.3 million
acres of publicly owned forest and range land, the Forest is the sixth
largest National Forest in the continental United States. Elevations
range from 4,200 to 10,900 feet and cover four of the six life zones.
Flora and fauna are diverse. Ocotillo and cactus are found in the
lower elevations, and juniper, pine, aspen, and spruce-fir forests are
plentiful in the high mountains.

The diverse topography, elevations, and climatic conditions on the
Gila National Forest create a diversity of landforms and plant and
animal habitats. Several federally listed threatened and endangered
species occur on the forest. Federally listed species include the
Mexican Spotted Owl, Southwestern Willow Flycatcher, Chiricahua
leopard frog, Mexican gray wolf, Gila trout, loach minnow, spikedace,
Gila chub, and Chihuahua chub.

The Gila National Forest supports a diverse mammalian, bird,
amphibian, reptile, and fish fauna. Important game species include
mule deer, Coues whitetail deer, elk, Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep,
pronghorn, mountain lions, and black bears. Over 330 species of
resident and breeding birds have been documented on the Forest.
Historically, seventeen species of fish occurred in the three major
basins on the Forest. Fourteen of these species are currently extant
and three species have been extirpated. Fifteen of the seventeen
species that historically occurred on the Forest are either federally
listed as threatened or endangered or are considered regionally
sensitive.

The Forest boasts a rich history of the Mogollon and Apache Indians,
Spaniards, Mexicans, ranchers, prospectors and miners. Apache Chiefs
Mangas Coloradas, Geronimo, and Victorio; conservationist, ecologist
and author of the Sand County Almanac Aldo Leopold; and renowned lion
hunter Ben Lilly are but a few of the personalities from the past that
have left their mark in the Gila.

Another unique beauty of the Gila National Forest is its wilderness.
The Gila, Aldo Leopold, and Blue Range Wildernesses offer unparalleled
hiking and horseback riding. The 558,065-acre Gila Wilderness, created
in June 1924 at the urging of the great conservation pioneer Aldo
Leopold, was the world’s first designated wilderness. The Wilderness
areas on the Gila comprise a vast, roadless realm astride the Black,
Mogollon, Diablo, and Blue mountain ranges, varying from grassland
foothills upward through juniper woodland, ponderosa pine, and then
spruce-fir forests on the high peaks. Mountain meadows, aspen glades,
and spruce forests border on narrow, rock-walled canyons which in some
places plunge to depths of more than a thousand feet.

The San Francisco, Gila, and Mimbres Rivers, the Catwalk, Pueblo Park
Campground, Gila Cliff Dwellings, Mogollon Baldy, Castle Rock, Eagle
Peak Mountain, Emory Pass, and the Burro Mountains are among the many
islands of beauty on the Gila. Other areas of interest include
Cooney’s Tomb, El Caso Lookout Tower, Beaverhead, Reed’s Peak, Frisco
Hot Springs and Cherry Creek. More information can be found at
