      This riding area is within the Iron Creek and Hat Creek drainages Southwest of Salmon, Idaho. The riding area has rides that range from 4,400 feet in elevation at the Salmon River to about 9,200 feet near Iron and Hat Creek Lakes near the western portion of the riding area.

The vegetation ranges from grass and sagebrush in the lower elevations to Douglas-fir, lodgepole pine, spruce, sub-alpine fir, and whitebark pine in the upper elevations.

This sparsely populated area has many primitive trails.
