- Our USFS permit allows us to park near the main roads & use a “feeder” road to avoid travel on the main Sullivan Creek Road – this route is NOT to be used without a permit! Areas visited on the Idaho side included: Granite Falls, Teddy Roosevelt Cedar Grove, and Huff Lake Interpretive Area (cranberry bog). With 9 rigs and 15 attendees it was a great day!
Granite Falls is a favorite place to visit & hike to the waterfall in the Kaniksu NF – OHVs are allowed here!
Huff Lake’s cranberry bog is another great spot to visit on the road to Nordman, ID.
Hiking the short trail to the Huff Lake interpretive display.
Huff Lake’s floating dock is fun for the kids of all ages!

The Pass Creek ride requires a USFS permit, as OHVs aren’t allowed anywhere in this area in the Colville NF.
Most roads on this route are in great condition!
Pass Creek Pass also features several great hiking trails, and plenty of parking.
NE Washington got the smoke from the wildfires for this year’s Pass Creek Pass ride!
USFS-permitted parking area on Highline Road – no OHVs are allowed on this route without a permit.
Pre-ride safety briefing
You can normally see the Idaho mountains from Pass Creek Pass, but the Oregon wildfire smoke had drifted in today.
This route is ATV-friendly, and here on the Kaniksu NF side, OHVs are legal!
Teddy Roosevelt Cedar Grove is another favorite stop, with hiking trails through the grove and up to Granite Falls.
The short but challenging hike to the lower Granite Falls is worth the trip!
There are lots of great places to stop along the creeks – this is by Sullivan Creek. Again, this ride requires a USFS permit!
