Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness, Idaho.

The "Frank", famed for it's Middle Fork of the Salmon, has rarely traveled 9,000 foot ridgelines, rugged peaks and lightly traveled trails.

Summary

Sections of the vast Frank Church are rarely visited, trails have deteriorated and old lookouts are in a state of decay.  Wilderness is slowly returning to wilderness!

Followup

Benign neglect seems to be working for this section of the Frank.  However, nearby wilderness airstrips and the continued development of private out-holdings are another story.
