    D M reviewed Chilco Mountain Trail

    about 1 month ago

    As of 5/11/18 this trail is passable but still covered in deep hard packed snow. The summit is also completely covered in snow, no trail is visible the last 1/4 miles. If your familiar with this hike, getting up is slow and seems to go on forever as it's all uphill but not too hard.
    The road in currently it's clear except for one spot near the trail head. If you have a 4x4 you should be ok. If you have a Subaru Outback you won't be. I pulled a very nice gal out of the snow who later climbed the mountain trail with me. No cell service, make sure you have a shovel or tow strap.
    In the summer months this trail is packed with local hikers.

    This a new park to the city of Post Falls with the path being an old dirt road which leads to the Spokane River a bit over 1 mile downhill. The road is well used by hikers, families and Mountain bikers. Its a gradual downhill slope that even my 4 year old was able to accomplish without any struggle. At the bottom lies the Spokane River which in the winter and spring runs really rough and wild, also keep in mind this location is below the dams in Post falls which can cause the water levels to fluctuate. Its a great overall family hiking location, no motorized vehicles allowed despite one jerk on a dirt bike ignoring the signs and tearing down the road. Several miles of inner trails can make this a worthwhile day hike.

    Attempted this trail on the Saturday after memorial day 2017. It began well but at 5600ft and 2.28 miles in, the trail vanished under several feet of snow which still remains at the higher elevations. With no map we deemed it unsafe to wander around aimlessly in attempts to get any higher up to Nelson Ridge and Aix. Hopes to complete this later in the year. Also, I have no clue to what the actual length of the trail is. The USFS trail book that I read list it at about 6 miles one way or 12 miles round trip.

    We took this trail hike a while ago with 3 kids in tow, all of which were wearing flip flops. This is an easy, flat, short trail through old growth cedars and trees near priest lake. It's more of a nature/learning trail than anything else. The trail loops around ending where it began. Good for a leg stretch and some sights.

    Awesome trail. Even in June it was pretty darn chilly in the tunnels and rained on us before the sun finally came out to warm us up.

    D M reviewed Black Bay Park trail

    about 1 year ago

    The Black Bay Park trail can be accessed from E 3rd Ave in Post falls for the longer walk or from N. Bay St for a shorter walk. Either way, the walk is short, easy but very pleasant. In the summer time, Black Bay is filled with swimmers and boaters. The bay itself is deep and clear and a short distance later is the Spokane River, which is also good for swimming, fishing and boating.

    D M reviewed Signal Point Road

    about 1 year ago

    This is a great easy hike on a maintained forestry road which is closed to all vehicle traffic. To gain access to this location, just follow Signal Point Road south of Post falls to where it dead ends. Park anywhere off to the side but do NOT block the road or gate. This hike can be done all year, in the summer its warm and dry and in winter it makes for great snowshoeing.
    Its a slow easy climb 4.5 miles up to the base of the mountain with all the radio towers on it. From there you can continue further on the road southwards or head back. The road does continue to the top but belongs to the FCC and warns otherwise... dont ruin it for us who respect property boundaries. The road in is also the only place allowed for people to travel as either side from the road belongs to paper companies or other private owners. Respect the signs please.
    Animals are abundant here. Signs of everything from bear to elk to quail can be found. Views the first 1.5 miles are of the Rathdrum Prairie and Post Falls. Beyond that views change to both Lake and the City of CDA, the Selkirk Mountains and Hwy 95 as it travels south towards the Palouse. A total of 9 miles round trip on this leg but you can push well beyond that if you desire. A must do for a day hike away from the hustle and bustle of town.

    .I discovered this trail just last night, despite having lived only a few miles away in the years past. The conservation area is nice and peaceful and made for a good Easter Day hike.

    Things to note, is that ample parking is available off of Henry Rd. From the parking lot, one can begin the ascent immediately to the top from the trail head beginning at the sign board. After about 8/10th of a mile you reach maximum altitude of around 2600 feet which according to my GPS was about 500 feet in elevation gain. Dogs are allowed but must be on-leash and picked up after, there were plenty of signs indicating no one apparently cares to pick up after their animals, both dogs and horses alike.

    The "Saltese Loop" runs just over 3.5 miles in length but about 2.5 miles in youll come to a sign which gives you the option to add another 2.5 miles onto your hike by taking the "Highlands trail". I would suggest this as the scenery changes to more of an open grass land shortly after the intersection and soon lowers down to the road level paralleling Henry Rd back to the parking lot. Several times along the Highland Trail will you cross seasonal creeks and muddy spots. A good place for the animals to grab a drink. Nothing was deep or too muddy, my shoes never even got wet.

    No water is available for humans though, at just under 5 miles you will have to suck it up for the duration or pack your own drinking water. Even on an Easter Sunday I still passed between 12-24 people along the trail whom were hiking, riding or running. This is a great area, I would encourage anyone to give it a try.

    This is a nice short hike, lots of switchbacks and all uphill until you reach the summit. Views at the top are great. This can be completed in a very short period of time.
