We hike and trail run here all the time. One of my favorite trails in the area.
Very pretty out! We enjoyed these trails and they're well maintained.
Great hike! Beautiful fall colors!
Typical 5 mile moderate hike
Going counterclockwise from the north trail head, the west side is the first half of the loop. It is mostly shaded, goes past a few seasonal trickle creeks, and varies between easy and moderate grade. It is well maintained and there are plenty of trail signs at junctions.
Near the top is big rock, and a trail down to the south trail head. If you are doing the loop, do not take this trail.
There are also a few side trails near the top. They go off to cell towers, tv stations, other ridges, etc. Most of these do not loop back so if you take them, expect to eventually backtrack to the main trail to get home.
The east side of the counterclockwise loop would be going downhill, it has little shade. Walking downhill here gives the best views of the serene Spokane Valley to the north. You feel like you are on top of a ridge, which you are.
This trail is heavily used by walkers, hikers, bikers and runners. It is well maintained and easy to follow. It is approximately 15 minutes from the I-90 freeway.
Decent. Views from the East side of the loop were nice.
Loved it! Fairly steep at the top but manageable.
Challenging if you start the trail up to the right. But the views on the way back down are worth it!
Super challenging with an excellent reward of views at the end.
Amazing view at the top so worth the hike great for all levels of hikers
Very scenic and offered all skill levels
Beautifil Hike. The trail loops around and you can take the left or right path. We started with the right path, which was shaded and had plenty of trees and then came back through the left, which did not have as much shade and was much more exposed to the sun. This worked out great for us because then we had the sun to our backs and a great view to look at. Great for the family.
