Post Falls Idaho History
Idaho has a huge shortage of cultural attractions, but its nickname "Potato State" could evoke images of vast swathes of farmland. Nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, west of Boise, Post Falls is the western gateway to Idaho for travelers on Interstate 90. The city is served by the Idaho Panhandle that crosses it, as well as a number of other towns and villages.
The state lines are connected by the Spokane River Centennial Trail, which stretches for 37 miles to Nine Mile Falls. The state line is connected to the Washington State Trail System, a network of paths from the Idaho Panhandle to the Washington, D.C. border, through the state of Washington and across the Idaho border and through the state of Washington to Oregon and California. They are also connected via the Boise - Spokane County Line and the Oregon - Idaho State Line.
