Where to see the fall colors in the Inland Northwest
It is officially fall in the Inland Northwest and that means the fall colors are on their way. Take the family on an outdoor excursion and visit these places across the Inland Northwest to see the fall foliage.
Pend Oreille National Scenic Byway
Enjoy some of the best views in North Idaho along the Pend Oreille National Scenic Byway. The route begins along US 95 north of Sandpoint. Follow Highway 200 along the most northern tip of Lake Pend Oreille, down through Trestle Creek and into Clark Fork. If you want to keep going, more fall foliage awaits across the Idaho-Montana stateline. Learn more.
You can find some of the most vibrant fall colors just a short way west of downtown Spokane. The John A. Finch Arboretum is made up of 65 acres of wooded hills. In September, the winged euonymous will start to change colors. The azalea, crabapple and maple trees are at the peak of turning in October. Learn more about the arboretum here.

Manito Park and Manito Boulevard
All Spokane natives know Manito Boulevard and Manito Park boast some of the best fall views. Start your trip along Manito Boulevard and 33rd Ave. Walk along the tree-lined road, which flaunts hundred-year-old maple trees. Continue straight into the park. There are several paths to choose from, but all will take you toward the full fall foliage.

Box Canyon Dam
