This is the loop at Liberty Lake WA, it can include a side loop of about 4 miles. - Hiking the loop clockwise (opposite the direction of this guide), you reach the Cedar Grove with a warning sign that the trail is "primitive" beyond that point. Keep on going, it is a disclaimer sign geared toward the casual day walker/hiker. The trail is a regular hiking trail beyond that point. Its not suitable for people out for a stroll in the park, but perfect for hikers. - If going early in the spring or late in the fall, when there is a chance of snow in the waterfall area, hike the loop clockwise (opposite the direction of this guide). The trail up to the waterfalls is steep, so in snow/ice conditions, it is better to be going uphill. Also, Diamond spikes or similar traction device for boots is recommended - along with a trekking pole. In snow/ice pack, continue to go up, the probability of injury increases exponentially trying to hike down steep ice covered inclines.

Well maintained moderate difficulty trail 10 minutes from downtown liberty lake. Good trail running trail

The trail is excellently maintained, and all streams are bridged. No wet feet. There are two large parking lots at the bottom. There are also seasonal restrooms and water at the campground trail head. Roads to trail head are paved, and parking lots are easy to find. There is seasonal creeks, streams, and a couple small waterfalls.

To get to the trail, you actually walk 0.3 miles from the parking lot through a bit of a park and a campground. You cannot park right at the trail head.

There is a seasonal fee booth to enter. It is currently two dollars. You can also ask questions and get a free map from the person at the booth.

Bring a map. There are several junctions on this trail, most of them unsigned. This means you can hike further than the loop. From the top of the loop, there are trails all the way to Micah peak if you desired a long hike. You can also hike south to a trail head in Idaho. You can also branch off the loop west and get to another trail head. There are quite a few options forking off of the loop.

There are only one or two short steeper sections of the trail. Overall the grade is pleasantly moderate to easy.

I think the full loop from the parking lot is about 7.5 mi. unless they changed some things. I've ran it, hiked it and taken my kids on it. it's a great place for everyone. I've seen old/young, you will be glad you did it.

Fun hike! Lots to see. Will definitely do it again! Preferred the trail near the creek. We did the loop and I would hike to the cabin and go back the same way next time.

Great hike! Suggest going clockwise on the trail so you can enjoy the creeks and waterfall. If you do the full loop, go early, The sunshine hits the trail on your way down the hill, or wear sunscreen!

This trail is a beautiful hiking experience and I will come back to challenge myself with full backpacking gear on. It's a must do, if you haven't done so.
