Getting here is half the fun!

The Frank Church Wilderness River of No Return was designated as a "primitive" area in 1980.

The "primitive" designation limits access to Sulphur Creek Ranch.

No wheeled or motorized access! This may be considered exclusive or inclusive...depends on who you like to associate with.

We do offer a unique destination in a setting that is unbeatable!

 ...

 Our most popular mode of arrival is flying private aircraft... Not a pilot, even better...Charter Flights are also available. Please refer to the Home Page under

Air Charter Services

located on the right side of the Home page

 

 Private pilots are welcome to land on our airstrip if they are patronizing our lodge only!

 Please refer to the "pilots" tab on the top of the Home Page for further information.

 

Charter services are also readily available for your travel needs. Please check our LINKS for our recommended service providers.

The second route is to ride in from the Middle Fork of the Salmon River Trail Head on horseback. Experience the Frank Church Wilderness as "the horse sees it"...the ride varys between 6-8 miles depending on the time of year. Our guests are welcome to ride their own horses or opt to have us pick you up and deliver you back to the trail head with our horses ($150 per rider).

We recommend that children be at least 12 years of age or be an intermediate rider to enjoy this option!

The third option is to hike the Sulphur Creek Trail!

 The Middle Fork Of the Salmon River Trailhead (right past Boundary Creek Campsite) is the ideal spot to park and leave your vehichle. The trip around the Morgan Ranch and into Sulphur Creek Ranch is approximately 8 miles, 2.5 hours on horseback. The hike is determinate on your speed, but be aware that there are marshy spots along the way.
