Ed Corkill Memorial River Trail Description

Once a Northern Pacific Railway line that transported goods, mail and passengers to and from the communities of Kendrick and Juliaetta, the Ed Corkill Memorial River Trail now provides a recreation and active transportation connection between the two Latah County communities. The former rail corridor was converted to a smooth asphalt trail upon the line's abandonment in 1997.

The scenic pathway parallels the Potlatch River, and bald eagles and osprey can sometimes be seen. The trail is a real treat for history buffs: 8 informational signs imparting the history of the corridor and 20 refurbished Northern Pacific wayside markers line the path. In Kendrick, the trail passes through a former rail yard, where the tiny city's original depot still stands.

At the southern end in Juliaetta, Centennial Park features a picnic pavilion and baseball diamond. The park is home to several of the community's annual events, including a car show and blackberry festival.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking for the Ed Corkill Memorial River Trail can be found south of downtown Juliaetta at Centennial Park on State Route 3. Restrooms are available.

Ed Corkill Memorial River Trail Reviews

I enjoyed what I saw of the trail, but around the 2.8 mile mark the trail was blocked by tons of really BIG boulders. Had to turn around.

This is a great little trail that is perfect for a short morning ride. The trail follows Potlatch Creek. There are views of the water, basalt cliffs, and pine covered hills. In the summer it can get very hot so this trail is best in the morning. There are bathrooms at either end of the trail.
