Description

The North Pend Oreille Scenic Byway is called the "Forgotten Corner" for a reason. Located in the very northeast corner of Washington State, the area seems as if time stands still. See where huge glaciers buried the ancient shoreline forever beneath the rubble of the ages and shaped the land anew. Today a great emerald river "carves its way northward around the ankle bones of mile-high, majestic mountains."

This byway provides visitors with the chance to experience solitude in the Selkirk Mountains. Encounter the breathtaking scenery and wander the trails and side roads for closer views. Catch a glimpse of some of the wildlife in the area. Visitors are likely to see woodland caribou, grey wolves, grizzly bears, and bald eagles.

Any season is the best time to visit the "Forgotten Corner." Lush green springs and summers contrast with brilliantly colored autumns and white, snowy winters. Take the opportunity to enjoy the variety of recreational aspects of this beautiful area. Come and discover the legacy that local pioneers have left for modern-day residents.
