Falls and shadows...
A hidden visual treasure is in the Idaho Panhandle National Forest, up the North Fork of the Coeur d'Alene River and it's an easy hike for everyone on a warm summer day. Shadow Falls and Fern Falls are both on a tributary of Yellow Dog Creek. Shadow Falls is about 20-25 feet high while Fern Falls is slightly smaller. Take the Kingston exit off of I-90 and drive north on Coeur d'Alene River Road to Beetle Creek Road and then 4 miles to the trailhead parking lot. The trail to Fern Falls is less than a quarter mile and Shadow Falls is about another quarter mile down the same trail. The lush greenery combined with the mist of the falls is picture postcard perfect.
