Description

After traveling the seven miles up the North Fork Asotin Creek Trail, the North Pinkham trail starts up through old growth forest on singletrack. The intersection from North Asotin Creek Trail to this trail is difficult to find. At the seven mile marker on the North Fork Asotin Creek Trail, look for a large tree in an open area with an orange stripe painted on it to the left of the trail. Turn right and the trail will be evident, making its way through the trees after you cross the tall grassy area.

At times this trail may be overgrown in spots, or in spring it may have some dead-fall, but it is not difficult to follow. You'll feel like you have succeeded in getting away for civilization on this remote trail!

Flora & Fauna

Elk are often seen on the higher ridges. You may see deer and maybe even a black bear or two on the Pinkham Trail.
