This walk started out with great trail markings but somehow got confusing. The blue trail crossed a street then the trail seemed to diminish. I turned around and followed orange and ended up at a private driveway.... then had to bushwhack to get back to the parking lot. not my best adventure

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.

Pros: Very accessible, borders the Spokane river, little incline Cons: Can get crowded, potential water danger on parts of trail
I have done this trail a few times through the years I have lived in the region and it is certainly a great spot to take a dog, or kids. You can fish in certain parts of the river, but it is important to recognize the dangers apparent in recreating in river water, especially at high flow in spring time. Also, Cougars have been reportedly spotted in the area, so one is wise to watch for signs that may signify animal activity.
3/5 stars

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

Good hike. Nice views of the river and the leaves changing colors.

Great place to get out on a minutes notice. Close to town, easy access.

Really enjoyed this solo morning hike.

The main trail is pretty wide, so this one is great for groups. Grab a snack to enjoy by the river :)

Nice little hiking trail if you're looking for something close to town. Easy path for dog walking.

Unexpectedly beautiful scenery, lots of places to swim, paved trail to Spokane River, several other dirt trails.Loved it!

Great trail that leads down to some very nice, secluded swimming spots on the Spokane River. Wore our swimwear the 2nd time we hiked this trail & swam & explored the river a bit.

A great gem for the city of Post Falls... beautiful place to get away.

Dogs are not allowed in this park (period).

This is a trail you can’t miss! Beautiful scenery, plants, and wildflowers. I plan on coming back to run it next time. It’s such a peaceful walk. You can hear the river for most of the walk.

July - Summer

This short trail is an easy hike down to the river.

At the top of the trail there are some pretty nice overlooks of the valley and Post Falls.

Once at the bottom of the trail you can go down to the river, or follow several other little trails and offshoots, some of which connect back into Q'emiln Park.

The trail itself is very wide, so it is easy for people to walk abreast. There is little water on the trail for dogs, but it can get a bit hot so best come prepared.

Parking area is large and can fit multiple cars. No parking or entrance fees.

Overall makes a nice evening walk for those in the area, but not something I’d go out of my way for.

This trail is a perfect start for those getting there taste for hiking. It's a road but designated for hikers, bikers, and horse back. It starts off with a fantastic view overseeing Western Post Falls and the Percell Trench Valley. It continues through thick forest surroundings and a spring creek. There is multiple trails leading off from the main path that can lead you from Q'emiln Park to the other side if Corbin Park. Maps can be found online. If you stay on the road it will lead you to the Spokane River. Easy peaceful hike.

Wonderful hike !!!!

Great hike. Beautiful place to explore.
Also great place to do some rock climbing.

Enjoyed wandering through the rocks on one side of the hike and sitting by the river.

Good hike for my dog, not too much climbing. It is a gradual decline on the way out and gradual incline on the way back. Not much shade so take plenty of water.

Trailhead starts a few miles out of Post Falls as Spokane Street turns into Riverview Drive take a right on West Riverview Drive go approximately 2 miles to the trailhead on the right. It sneaks up on you so be sure when you see the 20 mile-an-hour curve sign to slow down it's right after these curves. the trail is a gently downhill dirt road that wind's back and forth through the forest and beautiful open areas. this is a great time to go as there are many spring wildflowers blossoming along the trail! You will pass over a small little runoff creek as the trail winds downhill. After about a mile or mile and a half you will come to the Spokane River. there are many off trails you can take to explore the area or you can wind back around to the left on the lower trail that will eventually go up and lead you back to the main road to the parking lot. parking lot has 10 to 12 parking spaces including a handicap space next to the restrooms. Overall this is a great family trail. It only took an hour and a half round trip. you could stretch it out by having a picnic lunch down by the river. There are a few small beach areas, or large rock areas along the river to sit and enjoy the fantastic views. A great trail to take your dog for a nice leisurely walk. no poop bags provided so be sure to bring your own doggy bag to help keep the trail pristine.

fun and mostly flat. easy for beginners

Beautiful little trail down to the river! My daughter and I often putter around the Old Wagon Loop trail at Q’emiln, but hadn’t yet checked out this trail. I’m very glad we did. The views and terrain were varied and beautiful. We enjoyed views of the city and of the river. We also enjoyed all the streams along the way and the open forests and the great little beach at the end of the trail. We will definitely be adding this to our rotation of close-in, easy to get to trails that still make us feel like we were able to escape to the wilderness.

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.

Peaceful trail with great views

Beautiful walking trail and not overly crowded.

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.

our family has hiked here a few times and love it. my two sons 3 and 7 do great, note we are avid hikers.
