Latah Trail extends by an additional 3/4 of a mile in Bear Creek Canyon 

The Latah Trail Foundation is excited to announce that through its efforts, Latah County has acquired an additional ¾ of a mile of public trail in Bear Creek Canyon. The Latah Trail Foundation worked with a Bear Creek Canyon land owner to negotiate the sale of their rail property to Latah County. The Foundation enjoyed working with the property owners and thank them for supporting the Foundation and this wonderful community asset. The funds to purchase the property were donated to the Foundation from a generous anonymous donor. The Foundation thanks all who were involved in this exciting project.

The new trail extension is not yet open to the public because damage to the trail has occurred from mud slides and washouts. Once the repairs are completed, the Bear Creek Canyon portion of the Latah Trail will extend almost 5 miles from Troy toward Kendrick. Latah County does not own the entire right-of way through the canyon, as portions of the old rail line are still in private ownership and the public currently has no right of access to those portions.

In its ongoing effort to invite feedback from the public, the Latah Trail Foundation encourages the public to participate in an online survey designed to gather opinions, feelings, and hopes for the future of the Latah Trail. This anonymous survey can be accessed on this website at http://www.latahtrailfoundation.org/survey/.
