Salmo Mountain

Salmo Mountain Professional Review and Guide

"Few of Washington’s mountain roads will make you feel more like you’re traveling through an unspoiled wildland than the roads to remote 6,828-foot Salmo Mountain. The route is flanked by the rugged Salmo-Priest Wilderness, which protects stands of old-growth western red cedar, Douglas fir and western hemlock, species commonly associated with western Washington’s dense forests, as well as endangered grizzly bear and woodland caribou.

Salmo Mountain, topped by a lookout tower, stands at the edge of the wilderness, and provides a spectacular vista. You can combine this drive with Pass Creek Pass. On maintained dirt-and-gravel until you reach road 270, the final segment. While still easy with high clearance and 2WD, the road is primitive, with a rougher native surface."

We have done this trail in a T-bird before but that is NOT recommended. The road has seen many winters since that trip. The views are worth the bumps!
