Congratulations on the Great Work You are Doing in the Moscow Area!
The Latah Trail Foundation (LTF) was founded in the spring of 1998 by a handful of people with a vision for safe, non-motorized transportation and recreation along the former Moscow-Arrow rail line. The Latah Trail follows the railbed through the picturesque prairie and agricultural landscape near Moscow, fragrant pine forests by Troy, and into the strikingly beautiful Bear Creek Canyon.
Here are some of LTF’s recent accomplishments:
- Awarded a $30,000 Strategic Community Grant from the Inland Northwest Community Foundation to improve the trail surface of the Latah Trail in Bear Creek Canyon southeast of Troy. This project is also funded in part by a Federal Highway Administration Recreational Trail Project grant and matching funds from the LTF.
- Awarded a grant of $1,500 by the Moscow’s Women’s Giving Circle to help increase the accessibility of three existing ADA accessible toilets on the Latah Trail for those in wheel chairs. LTF will pave the gravel interface between the concrete floors of the toilets and the asphalt surface of the trail.
- Named Entrepreneur of the Year in the non-profit category by Palouse Knowledge Corridor economic development organization due to its continued commitment to regional development on the Palouse and to the community.
- Awarded a Placemaker Grant Award by the Latah County Board of Realtors to purchase the Dero fixit station, which has a bike tool repair kit, air pump and a rack to hold a bicycle while repairs are made. It will be located on the Latah Trail near the Picnic Grove and Bret Hyde Memorial Bench at the halfway mark between Troy and Moscow.
