This prehistoric trail follows the Kootenai River through old structures and orchards and bighorn sheep ranges. Eagles, osprey, river otters, and ducks may be seen as well as an abundance of terrestrial wildlife. This is a very popular trail with some benches for those wanting to just enjoy the sounds and sights of the river. The trail gets more primitive at the end, and is not recommended for families with children; but you can hike all the way to the Swinging Bridge. Fishing along the Kootenai River is excellent, so be sure to take along a fishing pole.
