At a Glance

It’s rare when the goddess Fortuna combines good Pavement and Engineering with a level of Remoteness usually reserved for gravel roads. And rarer still when the curves are there to make it all matter. The only civilization on this lonely byway is the handful of tiny farms and ranches within the first few miles of Curlew. Past that, the West Deer Creek valley narrows. So except for a brief plateau, there’s no flat land for aspiring homesteaders to try their luck before you’re well within the protected boundaries of the Colville National Forest, which covers the eastern two thirds of the road. This DH not only gets more remote as you head east, it gets twistier, with most of the curves coming on the descent off the Deer Creek Summit. As to the possible presence of Bambi & Company? Well, they don’t call it “Deer Creek” for nothing. Hope your good fortune holds.
