Falls Park, Post Falls, Spokane River Corbin's Ditch path

If you've never gone out of Falls Park and ventured out on a hike along the Spokane River, along Corbins Ditch you're in for a challenging treat. Corbins Ditch is that funny concrete viaduct you've always wondered about if you happened to glance to the south of the freeway going east just before you get to the Spokane Street exit in Post Falls .  A enterprising man at the turn of the 20th century decided to build this viaduct to bring water from the Spokane River to the west, as far away as the Spokane Valley. It is such an interesting and mostly unknown part of the area's history. The dam looked to be full open and was letting a torrent of water down the river. The Canadian Geese babies and wonderful wild flowers made me feel like spring was really here, finally!
