Riverside State Park is a 10,000-acre camping park along the Spokane and Little Spokane rivers in Eastern Washington. The park supports a wide variety of recreational activities and is rich in history. Freshwater marshes, running rivers and beautiful countryside make up the terrain. The park also includes the Nine Mile Recreation Area, which is available for camping, picnicking, swimming, fishing and boating.

I loved this trail very nice hike, beautiful scenery and close to Spokane

An enjoyable hike.

Nice and easy. Saw lots of dog poop in bags.

Nice hike. Saw a wolf near seven mile road and inland

Love this area for hiking , just challenging enough in some areas to keep it interesting. A nice , pretty and relaxing hike.

Fun little hike if you choose the lower paths. I think just around 3.4 miles. Also they had a posting that a cougar was near. Did not see one unfortunately.

Never found the trail. Directions took us to a residential dead end??

This area is beautiful, however, I personally enjoy seclusion during hikes. This includes not continuously running into a lot of people, and not being able to see parking lots on the opposite side of where we are hiking (which is what you'll encounter at this location). If this doesn't bother you, than I am positive you will enjoy this area, as previously stated the area is gorgeous. If there weren't so many people (like there were during our trips) and if we couldn't see the parking lots and hustle and bustle of the town than I would undoubtedly give this a higher rating. I personally believe this would be a great hike for families, especially with children, it's a convenient location for those in Spokane. There are areas off to the side (they're essentially small little beach areas) where you can enjoy a picnic and enjoy the scenery. If you're from out of town, and looking for a great hike and somewhere to find solitude, this isn't it, unless you're a photographer and want to capture some great shots. Although you're supposed to keep your dog on a leash, however a lot of people let their dogs off the leash, so be cautious of that.

I will try and post some pictures from our trips, if you choose to go, I do hope you enjoy it! Remember this was just my personal opinion and it isn't intended to offend anyone.

Trail wasn't marked very well but used a recorded track. Great trail, gorgeous views of the river and lots of different rocks! Not crowded at all on a week night.

Perfect family hike in the Spokane area. Will definitely do it again.

Great for a day hike. Mostly shady. Some steep climbs, but nothing too difficult. Our 9 year olds handled it fine.

Beautiful trail, multiple paths to take, mostly shaded, very well kept, pretty rocky at times, kid and dog friendly, multiple side trails leading down to River, absolutely loved it!

Nice, short loop with some excellent views of the river.
