    A Dirt Trail Winds Through the Trees at Old Kettle Falls
    The Old Kettle Falls townsite trail.


    Old Kettle Falls Town-site Trail: Starting in the Kettle Falls Campground, this one-mile trail winds through the original town-site of Kettle Falls. Watch for house foundations, sidewalks, and fruit trees - subtle markers of the past. The trail also leads to the swim beach and playground, and has views of the lake, as well as a chance to see great blue herons, osprey, and bald eagles.

    Kettle Falls Trail: Three trail segments start from the Kettle Falls Marina and continue to the Colville River. This out and back totals just under 5 miles (8 kilometers) and is relatively flat walking. Individual segments give access to the old Kettle Falls town site and opportunities for birding on the Colville River and among the pines. Start exploring.
