Post Falls Winter Activities

As the Inland Northwest days grow short, and the chill of winter weather sets in, there are opportunities abound for snow covered recreation in Post Falls. The Post Falls Community Forest, offers ample opportunity to move quietly through the winter landscape with nearly 500 acres of non-motorized snow covered fun. Hiking, snowshoeing and even fat tire biking are popular activities to explore your community forest. These nearby family friendly activities offer much to remain active and enjoy all 4 seasons. If you are new to these winter activities, Post Falls Parks and Recreation offers snowshoeing, cross country skiing and snow tubing trips to local destinations in our neighboring communities. They will even arrange the gear and transportation to help get you started.

Grab your ice cleats and wander around Falls Park during one of our cold snaps to see the massive ice formations on the canyon walls below the falls; watch how the mist from the falls freezes and hangs like a billion tiny diamonds in the air.  The deafening silence felt in a forest while it is snowing is a truly powerful experience that is hard to describe. So, grab your snowshoes and make your way over to the Community Forest during or right after a heavy snow and become a believer in the power of nature during winter.

Who says watersports are only for summer?! Grab your drysuit, PFD, and polished safety skills and head out on the Spokane River above the dam to get a unique perspective from your kayak. The glass-smooth water and tranquility of winter kayaking is a unique experience that will make you forget you ever thought about disliking winter.

After wrapping up any number of exciting winter adventures, make sure to stop in at one of our excellent local eateries for a warm drink and some delicious food to satisfy your hungry belly!
