Owl Mountain Trail

Monday, March 16, 2020

Other Names

Colville National Forest, Three Rivers Ranger District, Owl Creek, Kerry Creek, Grouse Mountain, Onion Creek, Huckleberry Ridge, Little Boulder Creek

Last Known StatusOpen

Located close to the Canadian and Washington border, this offroad trail is about 7 miles long but offers numerous scenic views of mountains, creeks and deep woods vegetation. Expect to take at least 3-4 hours to complete the loop.

The trail is a mix of hardpack with some rugged sections, moderate to steep climbs, descends. The trails also winds through a short swampy section and there are a couple rocky climbs that have bypass routes. There is a nice scenic viewpoint at the northern part of the trail that makes for a good spot to take a break and the panoramic views.

Riders are advised to bring a chainsaw and shovel since the trail is not maintained by the Forest Service. Local clubs and volunteers clear the trail as needed, but the route is likely to be overgrown with tree branches and dense vegetation.
