2 Days at the Colockum

The Colockum is a hidden treasure here in Washington State. With hundreads of miles of Green Dot Road riding, it’s a great place to Find Your Adventure.

It was interesting to learn that in this area, the roads / trails are only open part of the year to help with the health of the Elk herds, and to minimize animal conflicts on nearby private lands. You can read more about these efforts on the Colockum Elk Study by CLICKING HERE (opens a pdf).

This area is rich in history dating back to the early 1800’s. By one account, there was an Indian camp that covered more than 6 miles, in every direction. If you’re interested in the history of this and other areas across Washington State, I have found the book “Hiking Washington’s History” very informative. To view in Google Books; CLICK HERE.
