Thirteenmile Canyon

Thirteenmile Canyon Professional Review and Guide

"Venture through some of the most lonely, rugged, and spectacular backcountry in northeastern Washington. Traverse a deep and narrow canyon ?anked by towering granite walls before
emerging onto its lofty rim.

Then travel golden hillsides, groves of stately old-growth ponderosa pine, and sprawling meadows awash with wild?owers. Bears, moose, deer, and cougars prowl this wild corridor, while human visitation is light. The Thirteenmile Trail travels for 17 miles from the cottonwood-lined Sanpoil River to Hall Creek Road near the pine-and larch-shrouded Kettle Crest."

"Not since the 1930s, when the Civilian Conservations Corps was in full swing, has there been any major trail building in the hills above Republic. But all that changed in 2010 when recreation and conservation groups, in cooperation with the Forest Service, broke ground on a new trail network. Hard-working volunteers from Conservation Northwest, the Ferry County Trails Association, the Kettle Range Conservation Group, the Spokane Mountaineers, and the Washington Trails Association, along with trail crews from the Forest Service and the Curlew Job Corps (for disadvantaged youth), have constructed the first few miles of trail in what will eventually become a 12-mile loop with a connecting 6-mile spur to the Ferry County Fairgrounds."
