Craig Mountain - Idaho BLM Wilderness Management Area

Craig Mountain  is a beautiful area of steep canyons, coniferous forests, grassy slopes and wetland meadows which provides habitat for a diversity of animals including at least 133 birds, 47 mammals, 10 reptiles and 7 amphibian species. Common animals seen here include mule deer, whitetail deer, rocky mountain elk, black bear, mountain lion and game birds such as blue grouse, wild turkeys, ruffed grouse, mourning doves and valley quail. 

This area is located south of Lewiston, Idaho, and is an excellent side-trip for travelers along the Northwest Passage Scenic Byway, the Nez Perce National Historic Trail and the Lewis Clark National Historic Trail.  To better understand how to access the Craig Mountain Wilderness Study Area, visit this page on the Idaho Fish & Game website.
