The yurt is situated adjacent to the Yaak River at an elevation of 2,918 feet within the Salish Mountain Range of the Rocky Mountains in the Kootenai National Forest. Yaak River and its many tributaries provide habitat for a variety of trout and big game animals. The Yaak Valley has been an important route through history as a trail for the Kootenai Indians, early prospectors and loggers.
The town of Yaak is located approximately 5.3 miles northeast where you can grab a bite to eat or attend a community event.
Opportunities abound from this location. Hiking, fishing, floating, hunting, scenic and historical driving tours are just some of the activities to be enjoyed.
