This trail was named for Republic High School’s mascot, and plenty of golden tigers and alumni use this trail that connects the high school to the Ferry County Fairgrounds. The trail uses just a couple of the 28 miles of a former Great Northern Railroad trunk line (built in 1902) that extended from Republic to Danville on the Canadian border. A coalition of trail users and citizens are working hard to keep the section beyond the Golden Tiger nonmotorized (see “On Track with the Ferry County Rail Trail” sidebar). The Golden Tiger is unique in that it has a nonpaved motorized section running beside it. Motorized use is light and should not dissuade you from enjoying this wonderful trail.
