FRIEDMAN CREEK WILDERNESS STUDY AREA
The Friedman Creek WSA is characterized by steep mountainous terrain cut by numerous steep drainages along the southern end of the Pioneer Mountains. The diverse terrain enhances opportunities for hiking.
In Idaho, BLM manages nearly 10,000 acres of public lands in the Friedman Creek Wilderness Study Area. The WSA offers a diversity of primitive recreation opportunities. Friedman Creek supports a small trout fishery. The diverse terrain within the WSA enhances opportunities for camping and hiking. However, most of the camping opportunities within or adjacent to the WSA are located on private land.
Friedman Creek WSA is difficult to access due to private property. Visitors should consult a map, ensure permission to cross private property, and be prepared for rugged backcountry canyon hiking.
