PARKS & RECREATION

Troy is a sportsman's paradise!  Its four-seasons climate hosts a variety of outdoor activities such as fishing, hiking, 4-wheeling, hunting, camping, and biking. Troy is home to two parks. The main city park lies on the west end of town, just off State Highway 8. It includes a baseball field, tennis courts, basketball hoops, a picnic area, and playground equipment. It also has a covered shelter area that can host a number of events, such as the annual Troy days.

For reservations to use the covered shelter for your event, contact Troy City Hall at 208-835-2471 or email troycityhall@troyidaho.net

 

Duthie Park is Troy's second park and is nestled off of Pine Street. It was gifted to the city by the Duthie family in 1916 and offers seclusion amongst tall pine trees. The wooded area is also a place to go disc golfing.

The Latah Trail travels for 12 miles between Moscow and Troy on a 10-foot-wide paved path, paralleling State Route 8 until Howell Road, where it winds north through a forested to Troy's City Park. The trail occupies the former right-of-way of the historic Moscow to Arrow railroad.

 

From Troy, the trail carries on another 4 miles on a gravel bed through Bear Creek Canyon. Note, as of autumn 2011 you cannot take the rail bed corridor all the way to Kendrick since part of the route is private property.

Follow the signs through Bear Creek Canyon, which will clearly designate the portions that are owned by the Latah Trail Foundation (public access) and those that are private property. Please respect private property rights and obey all no-trespassing signs.

Surrounded by rolling hills and trees, Spring Valley Reservoir's fishing opportunities are favored by local anglers as trout are stocked heavily spring and fall.

 

A maintained trail surrounds the reservoir and fishing docks and platforms increase shoreline access.

 

Amenities include a picnic shelter, swimming beach, benches, picnic tables, handicap fishing access, and a developed boat ramp, but gas motors are not allowed. 

Directions: From US Hwy 95 in Moscow go about 12 miles east on State Hwy 8 through Troy. Continue 2.7 miles and turn north at the brown Access sign onto Spring Valley Rd. The reservoir will come into view in about two and a half miles.
