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. Find out more!
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.
The Sentinel Trail: Located at Fort Spokane. Trailside markers tell the story of the people lived and worked here in the late 1800s. Watch for remnants of buildings and other clues that will help you see what this thriving settlement may have looked like. For the adventurous, the trail climbs approximately 300 feet to the top of the bluff, providing you a spectacular view of the fort grounds and the confluence of the rivers. A free trail guide about the Indian boarding school is available at the Guard House.
Bunchgrass Prairie Nature Trail: This quarter-mile trail starts on the west side of the lower campground loop in the Spring Canyon Campground. Several parking spaces are available nearby.
