The Root Ranch is located 48 miles west of Salmon, Idaho in the heart of the Frank Church Wilderness Area, in a high meadow on Whimstick Creek at an elevation of 5,600 feet. It has it's own 2,100 foot airstrip*, a small lodge, four bunkhouse-style cabins and a dining room.
The cabins have beds with sheet-covered mattresses. You bring your own sleeping bag. Hot showers are located in the main lodge and family-style meals are served.
For recreation there is fishing, hiking, wildlife observation and photography. Sitting on the deck of the lodge and watching the deer, elk and moose graze in the meadow is a popular pastime.
The airstrip at the Root Ranch are private airstrips thus, for non members, permission is required prior to landing. Permission may be obtained by calling the ranch office at (208) 756-6295. These are back country mountain airstrips so mountain flying experience is a pre-requisite for landing.
