The northern part of the Wilderness is wetter and heavily forested; the southern part is dry and sparsely vegetated.

        Weippe, Idaho

        Overview

        Castle Butte Lookout is a unique cabin perched on a rocky point, 6,659 feet above sea level. It offers breathtaking, 360-degree views of the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness, the Seven Devils Mountains, the Great Burn area and the deep canyons of the North Fork Clearwater River's upper drainages. A cabin was first constructed on this site in 1916 and was replaced in 1928 with a log cabin featuring a cupola. The current lookout was built in 1950. Access to the lookout is via the Lolo Motorway, a primitive, single-lane road constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the early 1930s. It is not recommended for large RVs, vehicles with low ground clearance or trailers. Guests should be prepared to walk about 100 feet up steep, rocky terrain to reach the lookout. Castle Butte Lookout is equipped with a few creature comforts, but guests will need to bring some gear and supplies to help make their stay enjoyable. The panoramic view guarantees a memorable stay.

A vault toilet is provided in an outhouse behind the cabin. Guests will need to bring their own sleeping pads and bedding, as well as propane fuel for cooking and lighting.

Winter access, however, is restricted to snowmobiles or cross country skiing up to 57 miles. Guests are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring several of their own amenities. Natural Features The cabin was built in 1939 by the Civilian Conservation Corps for use as a fireman's cabin. It is situated at an elevation of 7,100 feet on a road that divides the 1.2 million-acre Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness and the 2.3 million-acre Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness areas. While the cabin is on the edge of an open meadow, most of the area is covered by coniferous forests. Because of its size, the wilderness provides a secluded habitat for a wide variety of wildlife.

Nearby Attractions The cabin lies near the prehistoric southern Nez Perce Trail, which was used by Native American tribes as a seasonal migration and subsistence route between eastern Oregon and Idaho and the buffalo country in eastern Montana. Today, the dramatic winding road serves as a boundary between the heart of thousands of square miles of two designated wilderness. The area is some of the wildest land in the country and is well worth the time to explore. ADA Access: N
