The Similkameen Trail begins on the western outskirts of Oroville, a small town in north-central Washington just a few miles south of the Canadian border. Following the historic Great Northern Railroad right-of-way, the gravel and dirt pathway parallels the Similkameen River northwest for more than 3 miles to the Enloe Dam. It's one day hoped to stretch further west to the rural community of Nighthawk. Along the way, trail-goers will enjoy spectacular views of the river and surrounding mountains.
Parking and Trail Access
Parking is available at two trailheads: one off Kernan Road in Oroville and the other off Loomis-Oroville Road, about 1.5 miles from the trail's southern endpoint.
