The top offers a great view of the Spokane area. Good trail for running or a day hike. Will be back to snow shoe!

Nice, well cared for trail. Went for a run on Sunday and it was a little muddy from the overnight rain but still in good condition. I would advise this trail to any one looking for a hill climb.

Great trail run, well maintained very uphill/downhill with not much in between. Beautiful views of Spokane and the surrounding hills. I did see several groups of people and most of them had dogs with them. This trail hooks to Stevens Creek trail. A sign was posted on the gate that in the last few days a run of car break-ins have happened. So make sure your car is empty of valuables.

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.

Challenging if you start the trail up to the right. But the views on the way back down are worth it!
