Drive: Pack River Access. The Pack River drains a large area of the Selkirk Range between Harrison Peak in the north and Chimney Rock in the south.
0.0 FS-231, Pack River Road leaves US-2/US-95 at Walsh Lake and proceeds north for almost 20 miles to a point just south of Harrison Peak.
FS-2605 leaves FS-231 and climbs to the east, eventually reaching the ridge line near Dodge Peak. At this point, the road becomes FS-291. This road drops off the ridge and heads north until it connects with the extensive road system which leads into the range from Bonners Ferry.

About admin

I would like to think of myself as a full time traveler. I have been retired since 2006 and in that time have traveled every winter for four to seven months. The months that I am “home”, are often also spent on the road, hiking or kayaking.
I hope to present a website that describes my travel along with my hiking and sea kayaking experiences.
