Are you looking for the ultimate weekend drive? Well, folks, we may have just found it, especially if you have a taste for all things ghost towns. You can drive the Historic Highlands Loop and see multiple spectacular ghost towns in a drive that will be a blast from Washington’s past.
The Historic Highland Loop takes you through several ghost towns and many attractions ranging from museums to fossil hunting. You can either do the whole thing which is 121 miles or break it up into sections for a multi-day trip. Whatever you choose, it’s sure to be an incredibly unique experience.
For convenience, the folks over at Route 97 have put together a handy map of the Historic Highland Loop you can view below.

One of the coolest stops along the way is Molson, WA. Here you can tour the old town and abandoned schoolhouse. And if you wait until August to make your trip you can also check out the Tonasket Garlic Festival on the River during your drive. See? Lot’s to do on this loop.
So if you have some extra time on your hands this weekend or summer in general consider getting out there and seeing Washington’s past. We won’t have these buildings and towns forever and we’re lucky to have so many in just one state. So get out there check them out and if you’d like to learn more you can click here.
