Ed Corkill Memorial River Trail

This Biking/Walking Path is a paved 5.3-mile trail that skirts the Potlatch River. In the 1890's the Northern Pacific Railroad built a rail line between and through the communities of Kendrick and Juliaetta. That Line was dismantled in 1997. The original rail bed is now a paved bike/walking path that provides documentation about the impact the railroad had to the area's development.

Eight railroad and tramway historical informational signs and 20 refurbished and identified Northern Pacific Railroad wayside marker provide the narrative.

The trail also passes through the site of the former 1910 Kendrick Rail yard in which the Depot and other buildings continue to take viewers back in time.
