This One Easy Hike In Idaho Will Lead You Someplace Unforgettable

Just south of the quaint mining town of Wallace is a hiking trail that is both serene and beautiful, with a heroic and historic backstory that only adds to its magic. This scenic, two-mile trek will lead you somewhere unforgettable as well: the historic Pulaski Tunnel, an abandoned silver mine entrance with a great deal of history in itself.

Whether you’re looking for an easy hike for the whole family or a lush and scenic escape with a huge payoff, the next time you’re up in Idaho’s Panhandle, be sure to pay a visit to this gem:

In commemoration of Pulaski’s efforts, the trail he blazed through the woods to the old mine was restored into this popular informative and remembrance trail in 2003, with scenery that captures just a taste of everything Northern Idaho has to offer.
