Little Pend Oreille National Wildlife Refuge
Located on the west slope of the Selkirk Mountain Range in northeastern Washington, Little Pend Oreille National Wildlife Refuge is the only mountainous, mixed-conifer forest refuge outside of Alaska. The refuge's 40,198 acres protect a wide range of forest types from low elevation ponderosa pine to high elevation subalpine fir.
From the intersection of Highway 395 and Highway 20 (Main and Third) in Colville, go 6 miles east on Highway 20 to Artman-Gibson Road.
Turn right on this road; and go 1.7 miles to an intersection with 4 corners. Turn left onto Kitt-Narcisse Road; and go 2.2 miles until the pavement ends, and the road forks into two gravel roads. Bear right onto Bear Creek Road; and go 3.3 miles to the refuge office, which is a log building on the right.www.hobogrill.org
