This area features more than 200 miles of groomed trails, hundreds of miles of ungroomed trails and vast off trail riding opportunities. A portion of the trail system actually follows the Lewis ' Clark Trail through the region. One favorite destination is Hemlock Lookout where you can look out over the Camas Prairie to the west and into Montana to the east. The Clearwater Ridgerunners Snowmobile Club maintains four warming cabins on the trail system.

Cavendiswh Sporting Clays-Discover the fun of shotgun sports!

12 miles northwest of Orofino, Idaho, we have a shotgun sporting clays range located on our grain farm where we throw clay targets of different sizes and types. Some simulate rabbits hopping away, while others simulate different bird hunting situations. We have flushing pheasant 108mm targets, springing teal 90mm (thrown straight up), quail 60mm flying away, crossing targets from different directions and incoming targets to name a few. At one station the shooter can even sit in a duck blindĀ and have clay targets imitate ducks or geese coming in to land.

Fishing Opportunities Abound!

Take your boat out on Dworshak Reservoir or the mighty Clearwater River and enjoy a day of fishing. The Clearwater River provides some of the best Steelhead and Salmon fishing of the Pacific Northwest. Many outfitters in the area can be booked for trips.
