Often described as one of the last frontiers of the American West, Ferry County combines a rugged mountain environment dominated by mining and logging industries with the breathtaking beauty of a wilderness retreat. Located in the northeastern corner of Washington State, Ferry County shares its northern boundary with Canada and its eastern boundary with the Columbia River.
The south half of the county falls within the boundaries of the Colville Confederated Tribes and the north half is largely occupied by the Colville National Forest.
Ferry County's topography and climate make it an ideal recreation destination year round. Comfortably warm summers provide ample opportunities to swim and fish the county's largest lake, Curlew Lake, or one of the many rivers throughout the area, including the Kettle River, the San Poil River, and the mighty Columbia River itself.
Washington State Highway No. 20 bisects the county from east to west and is designated a national scenic byway. Highway 20 also boasts the highest navigable pass in the state at 5575 feet. Sherman Pass provides both spectacular scenery and some of the most rugged hiking trails in the state. Winter transforms the trails to cross country ski routes throughout the Kettle Mountains, and snowshoes become the second most popular means of winter hiking.
