Wilderness Corridor Road Re-opens

Fall is coming (Photo courtesy Retoxx/Flickr)

It’s not often you’re advised to take a chain saw so you don’t get trapped but that advice is good if you plan on traveling the Magruder Corridor. It’s over 100 miles of some of the most primitive road in Montana and Idaho. On one side of you is the Bitterroot-Selway Wilderness and on the other is the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness. The two total over 3 million acres of wild country.

The road was originally built by the Civilian Conservation Corps back in the 30’s.  To go from Darby to Red  River ID will take an estimated 7-10 hours at a speed of 12-15 miles per hour. But oh the country you’ll see. Most travellers take two days and camp along the way. Make sure you take plenty of gas, at least one spare tire and yes, a chain saw. There have been several fires in the area this summer and in the past, plus dead trees. A couple of those across the road could really screw your plans up for a fun excursion.
