The Welcome Creek Wilderness Map produced by the US Forest Service contains the most up-to-date information on access roads, trails, campsites, terrain, and points of interest within the Welcome Creek Wilderness. All wilderness maps contain contour lines, a topographic quad index andcontact phone numbers, and the vast majority contain planning tips anddescriptions of the terrain.
The Welcome Creek Wilderness lies in the Rock Creek drainage about 25 miles east of Missoula, Montana. This 28,135 acre wilderness measures about nine miles by seven miles. The ridges are so steep and the valleys narrow and uneven that even finding a flat tent spot can be tough in much of the area. Most of the land is heavily timbered with pine, fir and larch (although the south-facing slopes have a few open but very steep grassy slopes) and is extremely rocky and rough. Welcome Creek flows south and east, providing a home to native trout. Elk hunters, bear hunters and a few adventurous fishermen from Rock Creek are the most common visitors.
