Area Restrictions (Red tape)
Just under 2 miles from the trailhead, the route enters the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness Area. Wilderness rules and regulations apply.
The Sam Billings Campground is just before the trailhead as you drive along the approach road. A nice secluded and rather large campground, this is probably the best place to camp if you plan to do so before tackling this route.
The only other area along this route that I would even consider good for camping is at the high lake just below the summit. The only problem is that camping there requires carrying your gear through some seriously rough and steep terrain to and from the area. I’m unlikely to ever attempt such a herculean feat.
