        Conservation System.
    (b) Maps and Legal Description.--
            (1) In general.--As soon as practicable after the date of 
        enactment of this Act, the Secretary of Agriculture, in the 
        case of the wilderness areas designated by paragraphs (1) and

SEC. 202. GENERAL ADMINISTRATION OF WILDERNESS AREAS.

    (a) Application of Wilderness Act.--Subject to valid existing 
rights, the wilderness areas designated by section 201 shall be managed 
by the Secretary concerned in accordance with the Wilderness Act (16 
U.S.C. 1131 et seq.) and this title. With respect to the wilderness 
areas, any reference in the Wilderness Act to the effective date of the 
Wilderness Act shall be deemed to be a reference to the date of the 
enactment of this Act, and any reference in the Wilderness Act to the 
Secretary of Agriculture shall be deemed to be a reference to the 
Secretary concerned.
    (b) Consistent Interpretation to the Public.--Although the 
wilderness areas designated by section 201 consist of National Forest 
System land under the jurisdiction of the Secretary of Agriculture and 
public land under the jurisdiction of the Secretary of the Interior, 
the Secretary of Agriculture and the Secretary of the Interior shall 
collaborate to assure that the wilderness areas are interpreted to the 
public as an overall complex tied together by common location in the 
Boulder-White Cloud Mountains and common identity with the natural and 
cultural history of the State of Idaho and its Native American and 
pioneer heritage.
    (c) Comprehensive Wilderness Management Plan.--Not later than three 
years after the date of the enactment of this Act, the Secretary of 
Agriculture and Secretary of the Interior shall collaborate to develop 
a comprehensive wilderness management plan for the wilderness areas 
designated by section 201. The completed management plan shall be 
submitted to the Committee on Resources of the House of Representatives 
and the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources of the Senate.
    (d) Fire, Insects, and Diseases.--Within the wilderness area 
designated by section 201, the Secretary concerned may take such 
measures as the Secretary concerned determines to be necessary for the 
control of fire, insects, and diseases, subject to such conditions as 
the Secretary concerned considers desirable, as provided in section 
4(d)(1) of the Wilderness Act (16 U.S.C. 1131(d)(1)).
    (e) Wilderness Trails and Trailheads.--
            (1) Construction of new trailhead.--The Secretary concerned 
        shall construct a new trailhead for nonmotorized users and 
        improve access to the Big Boulder Trailhead to separate 
        motorized users from nonmotorized users.
            (2) Inclusion of accessible trail.--The Secretary concerned 
        shall upgrade the first mile of the Murdock Creek Trail in the 
        Hemingway-Boulders wilderness area designated by section 201 to 
        a primitive, non-paved, and wheelchair accessible standard.
    (f) Treatment of Existing Claims and Private Lands.--Nothing in 
this title is intended to affect the rights or interests in real 
property, patented mining claims, or valid claims or prevent reasonable 
access to private property or for the development and use of valid 
mineral rights. The Secretary concerned may enter into negotiations 
with the holder of a patented claim or valid claim located in a 
wilderness area designated by section 201 for the voluntary 
relinquishment of the claim.
    (g) Grazing.--Grazing of livestock in a wilderness area designated 
by section 201, where established before the date of the enactment of 
this Act, shall be administered in accordance with the provisions of 
section 4(d)(4) of the Wilderness Act (16 U.S.C. 1133(d)(4)), section 
108 of Public Law 96-560, and section 101(f) of Public Law 101-628, and 
in accordance with the guidelines set forth in appendix A of House 
Report 96-617 of the 96th Congress and House Report 101-405 of the 
101st Congress.
    (h) Commercial Outfitters and Saddle and Pack Stock.--Nothing in 
this title shall preclude horseback riding or the entry of recreational 
saddle or pack stock into the wilderness areas designated by section

SEC. 203. ACQUISITION OF MINERAL INTERESTS AND LANDS FROM WILLING 
              SELLERS.

    (a) Acquisition.--Within the boundaries of the wilderness areas 
designated by section 201, the Secretary concerned may acquire, through 
purchase from willing sellers or donation from willing owners, all 
right, title, and interest in all mineral interests, claims, and 
parcels of land that have been patented under the Act of May 10, 1872 
(30 U.S.C. 22 et seq.; commonly known as the Mining Act of 1872).
    (b) Consideration.--In exercising the authority provided by 
subsection (a) to acquire lands and interests, the Secretary concerned 
shall offer the owners of record of each patent, who voluntarily wish 
to sell, $20,000 as compensation for the acquisition of these 
interests. The Secretary concerned shall make such offers as soon as 
practicable after the date of the enactment of this Act and such offers 
shall remain open for acceptance during the five-year period beginning 
on such date.
    (c) Incorporation in Wilderness Area.--Any land or interest in land 
located inside the boundaries of a wilderness area designated by 
section 201 that is acquired by the United States after the date of the 
enactment of this Act shall be added to and administered as part of 
that wilderness area.

SEC. 204. ADJACENT MANAGEMENT.

    (a) No Protective Perimeters or Buffer Zones.--Congress does not 
intend for the designation of the wilderness areas by section 201 to 
lead to the creation of protective perimeters or buffer zones around 
any such wilderness area.
    (b) Nonwilderness Activities.--The fact that nonwilderness 
activities or uses outside of a wilderness area designated by section 
201 can be seen or heard from inside of the wilderness area shall not 
preclude the conduct of those activities or uses outside the boundaries 
of the wilderness area.

SEC. 205. WILDFIRE MANAGEMENT.

    Consistent with section 4 of the Wilderness Act (16 U.S.C. 1133), 
nothing in this title precludes a Federal, State, or local agency from 
conducting wildfire management operations, including operations using 
aircraft or mechanized equipment, to manage wildfires in the wilderness 
areas designated by section 201.

SEC. 206. WATER RIGHTS.

    (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
            (1) The lands designated as wilderness areas by section 201 
        are located at the headwaters of the streams and rivers on 
        those lands, with few, if any, actual or proposed water 
        resource facilities located upstream from such lands and few, 
        if any, opportunities for diversion, storage, or other uses of 
        water occurring outside such lands that would adversely affect 
        the wilderness values of such lands.
            (2) The lands designated as wilderness areas by section 201 
        are not suitable for use for development of new water resource 
        facilities or for the expansion of existing facilities.
            (3) Therefore, it is possible to provide for proper 
        management and protection of the wilderness value of the lands 
        designated as wilderness areas by section 201 in ways different 
        from the ways utilized in other laws designating wilderness 
        areas.
    (b) Purpose.--The purpose of this section is to protect the 
wilderness values of the lands designated as wilderness areas by 
section 201 by means other than a federally reserved water right.
    (c) Statutory Construction.--Nothing in this title--
            (1) shall constitute, or be construed to constitute, either 
        an express or implied reservation by the United States of any 
        water or water rights with respect to the wilderness areas 
        designated by section 201;
            (2) shall affect any water rights in the State of Idaho 
        existing on the date of the enactment of this Act, including 
        any water rights held by the United States;
            (3) shall be construed as establishing a precedent with 
        regard to any future wilderness designations;
            (4) shall be construed as limiting, altering, modifying, or 
        amending any of the interstate compacts or equitable 
        apportionment decrees that apportion water among and between 
        the State of Idaho and other States; and
            (5) shall be construed as limiting, altering, modifying, or 
        amending provisions of Public Law 92-400, which established the 
        Sawtooth National Recreation Area (16 U.S.C. 460aa et seq.).
    (d) Idaho Water Law.--The Secretary concerned shall follow the 
procedural and substantive requirements of the law of the State of 
Idaho when seeking to establish any water rights, not in existence on 
the date of the enactment of this Act, with respect to the wilderness 
areas designated by section 201.
    (e) New Projects.--
            (1) Prohibition.--Except as otherwise provided in this Act, 
        on and after the date of the enactment of this Act, neither the 
        President nor any other officer, employee, or agent of the 
        United States shall fund, assist, authorize, or issue a license 
        or permit for the development of any new water resource 
        facility inside any of the wilderness areas designated by 
        section 201.
            (2) Definition.--In this subsection, the term ``water 
        resource facility'' means irrigation and pumping facilities, 
        reservoirs, water conservation works, aqueducts, canals, 
        ditches, pipelines, wells, hydropower projects, and 
        transmission and other ancillary facilities, and other water 
        diversion, storage, and carriage structures.

SEC. 207. WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT.

    (a) State Jurisdiction.--In accordance with section 4(d)(7) of the 
Wilderness Act (16 U.S.C. 1133(d)(7)), nothing in this title affects or 
diminishes the jurisdiction of the State of Idaho with respect to fish 
and wildlife management, including the regulation of hunting, fishing, 
and trapping, in the wilderness areas designated by section 201.
    (b) Management Activities.--In furtherance of the purposes and 
principles of the Wilderness Act, management activities to maintain or 
restore fish and wildlife populations and the habitats to support such 
populations may be carried out within wilderness areas designated by 
section 201 where consistent with relevant wilderness management plans, 
in accordance with appropriate policies such as those set forth in 
appendix B of House Report 101-405 of the 101st Congress, including the 
occasional and temporary use of motorized vehicles, if such use, as 
determined by the Secretary concerned would promote healthy, viable, 
and more naturally distributed wildlife populations that would enhance 
wilderness values and accomplish those purposes using the minimum tool 
necessary to reasonably accomplish the task.
    (c) Use of Aircraft.--Consistent with section 4(d)(1) of the 
Wilderness Act (16 U.S.C. 1133(d)) and in accordance with appropriate 
policies such as those set forth in appendix B of House Report 101-405 
of the 101st Congress, the State of Idaho may continue to use aircraft, 
including helicopters, to survey, capture, transplant, monitor, and 
manage elk, deer, bighorn sheep, mountain goats, wolves, grizzly bears, 
and other wildlife and fish.
    (d) Hunting, Fishing, and Trapping.--Nothing in this title shall 
affect hunting, fishing, and trapping, under applicable State and 
Federal laws and regulations, in the wilderness areas designated by 
section 201. The Secretary concerned may designate, by regulation in 
consultation with the appropriate State agency (except in emergencies), 
areas in which, and establish periods during which, for reasons of 
public safety, administration, or compliance with applicable laws, no 
hunting, fishing, or trapping will be permitted in the wilderness 
areas.

SEC. 208. NATIVE AMERICAN CULTURAL AND RELIGIOUS USES.

    Nothing in this title shall be construed to diminish the rights of 
any Indian tribe. Nothing in this title shall be construed to diminish 
tribal rights regarding access to Federal lands for tribal activities, 
including spiritual, cultural, and traditional food-gathering 
activities.

SEC. 209. MILITARY OVERFLIGHTS.

    Nothing in this title restricts or precludes--
            (1) low-level overflights of military aircraft over the 
        wilderness areas designated by section 201, including military 
        overflights that can be seen or heard within the wilderness 
        areas;
            (2) flight testing and evaluation; or
            (3) the designation or creation of new units of special use 
        airspace, or the establishment of military flight training 
        routes, over the wilderness areas.

SEC. 210. WILDERNESS REVIEW.

    (a) National Forests.--Section 5 of Public Law 92-400 (16 U.S.C. 
460aa-4), which required a review of the undeveloped and unimproved 
portion or portions of the Sawtooth National Recreation Area 
established by that Act as to suitability or nonsuitability for 
preservation as part of the National Wilderness Preservation System, is 
repealed.
    (b) Public Lands.--
            (1) Finding.--Congress finds that, for the purpose of 
        section 603 of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 
        1976 (43 U.S.C. 1782), the public land administered by the 
        Bureau of Land Management in the following areas have been 
        adequately studied for wilderness designation:
                    (A) The Jerry Peak Wilderness Study Area.
                    (B) The Jerry Peak West Wilderness Study Area.
                    (C) The Corral-Horse Basin Wilderness Study Area.
                    (D) The Boulder Creek Wilderness Study Area.
            (2) Release.--Any public land described in paragraph (1) 
        that is not designated as wilderness by this title--
                    (A) is no longer subject to section 603(c) of the 
                Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (43 
                U.S.C. 1782(c)); and
                    (B) shall be managed in accordance with land 
                management plans adopted under section 202 of that Act 
                (43 U.S.C. 1712).

            TITLE III--BOULDER-WHITE CLOUDS MANAGEMENT AREA

SEC. 301. ESTABLISHMENT OF MANAGEMENT AREA.

    (a) Findings and Purposes.--In the case of those Federal lands not 
designated as wilderness in title II, Congress has examined the 
management alternatives for such lands and finds that the designation 
of such lands as a special management area will provide outstanding 
opportunities for many forms of recreation, including mountain biking, 
snowmobiling, and the use of off-road motorized vehicles. The purpose 
of this title is to statutorily provide for the continued management of 
such lands for motorized and other recreational opportunities, 
livestock grazing, and conservation and resource protection in 
accordance with the existing management areas, plans, and applicable 
authorities of the Challis National Forest, the Sawtooth National 
Forest, the Sawtooth National Recreation Area, and the Challis District 
of the Bureau of Land Management. In addition, it is the purpose of 
this title to provide that motorized use of such lands shall be allowed 
in accordance with the travel maps entitled ``Boulder-White Clouds 
Management Area Travel Plan'' and ``Boulder-White Clouds Management 
Area Winter Travel Plan'' and dated November 15, 2006.
    (b) Establishment.--
            (1) Establishment.--Those Federal lands in the Challis 
        National Forest, the Sawtooth National Forest, the Sawtooth 
        National Recreation Area, and the Challis District of the 
        Bureau of Land Management that are not designated as wilderness 
        in title II, as generally depicted on the map entitled 
        ``Boulder-White Clouds Management Area'' and dated November 15, 
        2006, are hereby designated as the Boulder-White Clouds 
        Management Area and shall be managed as provided by this title.
            (2) Relation to sawtooth national recreation area.--The 
        designation of land already in the Sawtooth National Recreation 
        Area for inclusion in both the management area and the Sawtooth 
        National Recreation Area is declared to be supplemental to, not 
        in derogation of, the Sawtooth National Recreation Area.
            (3) Management area defined.--In this title, the term 
        ``management area'' means the Boulder-White Clouds Management 
        Area designated by this subsection.
    (c) Administration.--
            (1) Secretary concerned defined.--In this title, the term 
        ``Secretary concerned'' means--
                    (A) the Secretary of Agriculture, in the case of 
                National Forest System lands included in the management 
                area; and
                    (B) the Secretary of the Interior, in the case of 
                public lands included in the management area.
            (2) Administration.--Except as otherwise provided in this 
        title, the Secretary concerned shall administer the management 
        area in accordance with this title and the laws and regulations 
        generally applicable to the National Forest System lands and 
        the public lands included in administrative areas in existence 
        as of the date of the enactment of this Act and in accordance 
        with the management plans of the Sawtooth National Recreation 
        Area, the Challis National Forest, the Sawtooth National 
        Forest, and the Challis District of the Bureau of Land 
        Management in existence as of that date.
            (3) Relation to sawtooth national recreation area.--If 
        lands in the management area are also included in the Sawtooth 
        National Recreation Area, the Secretary of Agriculture shall 
        also administer that land in accordance with Public Law 92-400 
        (16 U.S.C. 460aa et seq.).
            (4) Continued reference to existing administrative units.--
        Notwithstanding the establishment of the management area, the

        the Challis National Forest, the Sawtooth National Forest, and 
        the Challis District of the Bureau of Land Management, 
        including areas within the administrative units established as 
        the management area, shall continue to be known as the Sawtooth 
        National Recreation Area, the Challis National Forest, the 
        Sawtooth National Forest, and the Challis District of the 
        Bureau of Land Management, respectively, and shall be so 
        designated on any signs and maps prepared by the Secretary 
        concerned.
    (d) Development.--No new roads may be constructed within the 
management area, except as necessary for access to campgrounds and 
other recreation areas as determined by the Secretary concerned. Roads 
may be maintained and relocated as necessary. The Secretary concerned 
shall permit the mining and removal of gravel, sand, and rock along 
existing roads in the management area as necessary for road maintenance 
in accordance with the applicable management plan.
    (e) Timber Harvesting.--Timber harvesting may be allowed on lands 
in the management area only in accordance with the management plan 
applicable to the lands and for necessary control of fire, insects, and 
diseases and for public safety.
    (f) Trails.--
            (1) Construction, maintenance, and improvements.--There is 
        authorized to be appropriated to the Secretary of Agriculture 
        and the Secretary of the Interior $650,000 for trail 
        construction and maintenance and for other improvements related 
        to outfitting, guiding, hiking, and horseback use within the 
        management area. Amounts appropriated pursuant to this 
        authorization of appropriations shall remain available until 
        expended.
            (2) Set-aside for trail construction.--Of the amounts 
        appropriated pursuant to the authorization of appropriations in 
        paragraph (1), $150,000 shall be available for the construction 
        of--
                    (A) a trail between the Phyllis Lake Road (USFS 
                Road #053) and Phyllis Lake, which shall be primitive 
                and non-paved, but wheelchair accessible, and open only 
                to non-motorized travel; and
                    (B) the primitive and non-paved, but wheelchair 
                accessible, trail along Murdock Creek in the Hemingway-
                Boulders wilderness area required by section 202(e)(2).

SEC. 302. LAND ACQUISITION IN MANAGEMENT AREA.

    (a) Land Acquisition.--The Secretary concerned may acquire, by 
donation or purchase from willing sellers, lands and interests in 
lands--
            (1) located inside the boundaries of the management area;
