Trail Overview

Gravel USFS roads make this an easy trail for any vehicle, but 4WD is recommended for wet and snowy conditions. There are no obstacles other than mud puddles and ruts in places. It's a great family ride and is excellent hunting territory within the Colville National Forest, plus features a walking tour of the Old Dominion silver and lead mine near Colville.

History

Old Dominion Mine was prospected in the 1880s and was a major silver, zinc, and lead producer in NE Washington, and is geologically linked to many other mines in the area north and east of Colville.

Access Description

We started this route from the Old Dominion Mine on a county road, Old Dominion Road, but street-legal vehicles including OHVs can ride from Colville using back roads (city and county only - state highway 20 isn't open to OHVs).
