The non-motorized Latah Trail follows the former Moscow-Arrow railbed, through the picturesque prairie and agricultural landscape near Moscow, fragrant pine forests by Troy, and into the strikingly beautiful Bear Creek Canyon. So far, the trail is 16 miles long, including 12 paved miles between Moscow and Troy and a 4-mile graveled section south of Troy in Bear Creek Canyon. A journey along the trail will allow you to experience the sights and sounds of working farms, the rich history of the railroad, friendly communities, and a wide variety of plants and wildlife along the Latah Trail.
The Latah Trail Foundation is directed by a volunteer board of directors from local communities. Our efforts to maintain and expand the trail rely on support from people like you. Our fundraising goes to help the trail -- things like paving in Bear Creek Canyon, conducting regular maintenance, installing restrooms, planting native plants, installing new signage, continued outreach, and trail expansion.
The Latah Trail is part of a growing regional network of trails that enjoy significant public support and demand. It is a non-motorized trail where people in our community can get outside and recreate with their family and friends in a safe and relaxed environment. It is also a safe and enjoyable alternative to commuting to work or school by automobile. The Latah Trail Foundation is committed to continuing this important mission – getting people outside, exercising, and experiencing the beautiful Palouse. Please join us!
