About MullanSilver Valley's easternmost mining town was established in 1885 and named for John Mullan, an Army captain credited with blazing a 624-mile road across Montana, Idaho and Washington in the early 1860s. The Lucky Friday Mine, dating back to 1899, still produces silver.

Mullan nestles below Lookout Pass in the Bitterroot Mountains, a popular year-round recreation area for skiing, snowboarding, hiking and mountain biking. The paved Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes follows a former Union Pacific railway path 72 miles west from Mullan to Plummer; phone (208) 682-3814 for additional information. With 10 tunnels and seven trestles, the gravel, 15-mile Route of the Hiawatha runs south of Lookout Pass along another repurposed railroad right-of-way. Shuttles are available at trailheads from late May to late September; phone (208) 744-1301 or (208) 245-2531.
