Halfway is nestled in the center of Pine Valley between Richland (Eagle Valley) and Oxbow (Hells Canyon). During spring, summer, and fall, downtown is festooned with colorful hanging flower baskets maintained by the city's youth groups. And with abundant snow, Halfway's neighborly traffic is punctuated by the roar of snowmobiles.
Halfway has an excellent small museum filled with Pine Valley history, artifacts, diaries and records. The city and its merchant community serve the needs of its 350 residents and those of the Pine Valley ranching and farming community. Many of Halfway's permanent or part-year residents moved here because of a treasured vacation where they had such good hunting, fishing, or camping experiences.
Snowmobile and cross-country skiing enthusiasts find respite in Halfway after a day of fun and excitement in the nearby mountain areas combed with interesting trails. Hiking and rock climbing buffs camp out or use one of many excellent lodging facilities as their base camp.
Nearby Hells Canyon National Recreation area is an easy half-hour drive following the meandering Pine Creek and photographers as well as those interested in river rafting or jet boating find plenty to pique their interest. Halfway's city government and service organizations work hard to keep Halfway up to date while maintaining its historic character and personality.
