Hike into the heart of Colville's Salmo-Priest Wilderness -- so remote that even grizzly bears have been spotted here. This is high country, with some of the most impressive old growth stands this side of the Cascades. You'll experience old growth cedar, moss, ferns and wildflowers galore. But the vistas are pure Inland Northwest - vast views of the Selkirks and the Upper Priest River Valley.

The Geophysical Trails are accessible year round, but are primarily used for Nordic skiing in winter (no hiking/snowshoeing on the groomed trails). The trailhead is a SnoPark, so you'll need a Sno-Park permit to park in the winter. For the rest of the year, it's open to non-motorized multi-use.

Manresa Grotto remains closed to the public during the COVID-19 pandemic
The sign outside the Manresa Grotto states simply: "A beautiful grotto exists." And it's true! It does exist, and while it's beautiful in its own way, it can be a little eerie when one visits alone on a rainy day.

From here, enjoy watching a wide variety of birds and fish play and dive in the skies and water. Keep an eye out for the resident pair of bald eagles, or raptors flying the thermals above the cliffs near Bayley Lake just south of the pond.
