Pine Street Woods

PSW Needs Your Help

Kaniksu Land Trust has applied for a special use permit with the City of Dover to provide broader opportunities at Pine Street Woods, such as youth programs to connect children to nature and low-cost equipment rentals so more people can experience the joys of cross country skiing and mountain biking. This permit is crucial to the continued success of Pine Street Woods, and your support can make a difference in this process.

The first part of this process is a public hearing with the Dover Planning & Zoning Commission. This hearing will be held on November 7, 2019 at 6:00 pm at Dover City Hall, 699 Lakeshore Ave., Dover.

There are several ways to support KLT, Pine Street Woods and our partners, Sandpoint Nordic Club, Pend Oreille Pedalers and the Monday Hikers, in this process:

Thank you for your support!

Sandpoint Nordic Club and Kaniksu Land Trust have partnered to provide groomed Nordic trails on the newly acquired, Kaniksu Land Trust owned property, Pine Street Woods.  PSW offers These 180 acres of rolling hills, healthy woodlands, and beckoning trails. These trails will provide the opportunity for our community to ski on higher elevation trails, while still being very close to town. The higher elevation will provide a longer ski season, and the terrain of the property will offer fun trails for all skier abilities. 

Join us in celebrating this exciting transition in our Nordic community, and support trail development and future infrastructure, by joining as a member or donating. Let's grow our active winter community!

Recreation Center

The Recreation Center will be a space for connecting with fellow skiers, renting skis, waxing skis and will be staffed by a Rec Center Coordinator who will be available to answer questions and help with ski rentals. 

 

The outdoor recreation center aims to be your home base for exploring nature.  It will become a place for warming toes after cross country skiing, renting snowshoes for a snowy walk in the woods or enjoying a quiet spring afternoon sitting on the porch watching the sun shine down on the meadow.
