River of No Return Wilderness was created by Congress
in 1980. Perhaps the greatest success of Idaho
conservationists, it is the single largest designated
wilderness area in the lower 48 states of the
United States. It is almost 2.4 million acres
in extent, covering a vast array of ridges, deep
canyons, glaciated peaks, meadows, and one large
rolling plateau -- the Chamberlain Basin which
covers 500 square miles. Located entirely in the
vast Salmon River Mountains, it embraces a portion
of the largest continuously mountainous terrain
in the United States. Over 3000 miles of trails
provide access inside the Wilderness.
The FC-RNR Wilderness is full of wildlife, especially elk, but also mule and while-tailed deer, moose, bighorn sheep, mountain goats, black bear, coyotes, bobcat, numerous cougar, pine marten, wolverine, a few lynx, and now quite a few wolves. Only the grizzly bear is lacking.
Because the altitude ranges from 2000 or 3000 feet in the deepest canyons to over 10,000 feet on the peaks, year round range for wildlife is provided. Elk, deer and moose do not need to migrate out of the wilderness to winter range near Idaho towns and cities.
After the death of Senator Frank Church in 1982, Idaho Senator Jim McClure had Congress rename the wilderness the "Frank Church/River of No Return Wilderness" in honor of the late senator Church's support for preserving this wild core of the Idaho mountains..
