Visit preserved tracts of old growth timber such as Walker Park near Headquarters. A stand of western Red Cedar and western White Pine showcases trees 10 to 15 feet in
diameter and 200 feet tall. The gateway to the Clearwater and Nez Perce National Forests and the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness offer multiple opportunities for a relaxing
vacation away from the crowds and traffic. In these wide open spaces, you can plan a backpack trip, spend a week or more hunting or fishing, enjoy a guided pack trip and really get away from it all.
Visit the Clearwater National Forest Headquarters on Hwy 12 near the bridge to Orofino to find maps and books on regional history and wildlife. The staff can help you find hiking trails and fishing and swimming spots.
