"...this is the perfect reference and trail companion for those who explore this section of the Idaho backcountry." - Cecil Andrus, former Governor of Idaho
A few miles north of Sun Valley, Idaho, the Sawtooth Mountains rise thousands of feet above the headwaters of the Salmon River, like saws set on edge. To the east of the Sawtooths above wrinkled, wooded foothills the Cecil D. Andrus Boulder-White Clouds Wilderness mountains soar in summits of vanilla ice cream.
