Gold Rush Historic Byway

Greer to Headquarters

A gold strike in 1860 brought prospectors across the Clearwater River and along the aptly named Gold Rush Historic Byway. Bursting with fascinating scenery, wildlife, and history, the year-round route begins east of Orofino at the junction of Hwy 12 and Hwy 11 at Greer and follows Hwy 11 to Headquarters. Total distance: 42 miles, 1.5 hours.
