The City of Post Falls is working toward the development of a 500 acre multi-use natural area called the Post Falls Community Forest.
It is envisioned for this area to serve as a multi-use property for the City, providing an opportunity to reuse highly treated Class A reclaimed water via drip irrigation, serving as an educational forest, and providing outdoor recreational opportunities to citizens and visitors.
This naturally forested area contains approximately 2 miles of Spokane River frontage, hiking, mountain biking trails, native trees and shrubs, wildlife, and amazing granite cliffs and rock outcroppings.
This area is currently open for non-motorized public recreation. It can be accessed by entering the trailhead located in Q’emiln Park. Development of a trailhead and comfort facilities along West Riverview Drive are also planned to allow for convenient public access at the southern border of the Community Forest. Future development of reclaimed water facilities may result in temporary closures of affected areas for public safety during projects.
