Beautiful hike just off from downtown Post Falls. Can explore parts of history, rock climbing, nice several different pathways, and see parts of the Spokane River.

Beautiful hike. Miles of trails, and while dogs aren’t allowed in the park area, all the hiking trails are open to dogs.

May, June - Late Spring\Early Summer

The Old Wagon trails weaves itself in and out the surrounding forest near the river.

During the beginning of summer the forest can be very lush and green, reminding me of areas like Multnomah Falls. If you make your way down to the river, you can get some nice views of the dam and the water. Depending on when you go, the water levels can be fairly high.

One thing unique to the trail are all the cliffs and small valleys. Not only do these cliffs offer a nice view, but they allow people to rock climb in several of them.

The trails themselves are pretty easy going. No inclines, and they all are well trodden. Can be easy to get turned around though if you’ve never been. These trails can also connect up to the Upper Falls Community Forest trail.

Parking area is quite large, but starting around mid June the park becomes a lot busier, and there is a 5$ entrance fee for the summer.

Overall the lush woods, rugged cliffs, and the rock climbing opportunities make this one worth coming back for.

Beautiful!! Lots of places to explore. You can stay on the trail and keep it easy or wander off and make it a bit more of a difficult trail.

I do this hike all the time because I love how beautiful the area is. I think it is lush and relaxing. I do wish people listened a bit more to the LNT principle because this land is often a little messed up by the people who want to enjoy it.

I strolled this hike with a friend, on this splendid autumn day. The hike is mostly flat. There are a lot of side trails to explore. We hiked a total of 4.7 miles. The views of the river are nice. There are some cliffs that are popular with rock climbers. The autumn leaves are lovely.

Lots of side trails, some named or numbered, some not. There is a road trail that will take you up to some nice views. Other trails take you to the river.

Great hike because of all the different routes. There are a few places where you can extend this for a longer hike. Went pretty far up an old road for a nice change. I have several tracks showing them. Some areas are private property, so watch for signs.
