Spokane and Eastern Washington Sights

Colville National Forest

Updated 03/24/2013

Fodor's Review

This vast region encompasses mountains, forests, and meadows in the state's northeast corner. Here the desert area ends, and three mountain ranges (Selkirks, Kettle River, and Okanogan)—considered foothills of the Rocky Mountains—traverse the region from north to south. It's a beautiful, wild area, where only the river bottoms are dotted with widely spaced settlements and where the mountains (with an average height of about 4,500 feet) are largely pristine. The streams

abound with trout, and the forests with deer and black bears. This is perfect backpacking country, with many trails to remote mountain lakes.
