Idaho offers some of the most pristine wilderness areas in the lower 48 states. Follow a trail through 6,000 foot river canyons, hike to crystal alpine lakes or jagged peaks, or find solitude on thousands of miles of hiking trails in Idaho’s designated wilderness areas, two of which (the Frank Church and Selway Bitteroot Wilderness areas) are the largest in the lower 48 states. Some of the most popular wilderness areas for hiking include:
- Sawtooth Wilderness
- Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness
- Owyhee River Wilderness Area
- Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness
- Gospel Hump Wilderness
- Hells Canyon Wilderness
