Take a walk down this restored trail named after a local hero.
The Pulaski Tunnel Trail leads guests down into a mine that has some historical significance to Northern Idaho. In 1910, there was a devastating fire that burned through the area. The founder of the trail, Edward Pulaski, was a firefighter who led his crew of 45 men to this tunnel to keep them safe from the fire.
For several decades after the fire, the location of the tunnel was lost. It wasn’t until 1979 when archaeologist Carl Ritche rediscovered the tunnel. The community of Wallace made a trail to the site and restored the tunnel for visitors to come and see it.
By taking this trail, you can see the Pulaski tunnel as well as the Nicholson mine located not too far from the tunnel. Dogs are allowed on the trail if they stay on a leash. This is a great way to see the beautiful countryside of Wallace, Idaho. Bring a camera with you to capture some awesome views during your walk.
