This is my go to trail at Landahl, since I'm still fairly new to mountain biking. I do Family Trail going out and then Will's Wanderer (the actual trail name) coming back. They're not too hard but both definitely have some tricky spots. The trail was changed this year to make the end a little less challenging and to avoid some huge rocks. Dave's Maze is another great trail that connects to these two and is about the same level of difficulty.

Amazing Overlooks! Would recommend going on a clear blue sky day.

Just another badly marked and cryptic trail that will easily get you lost. Even the trail head maps were off the mark. Got lost after waiting for the local "Trail Nerds" group run that never showed (not even sure they exist anymore) and found myself super lost in the dark. Not to mention LOTS of rocks, somewhat dangerous for runners and the occasional weed smokers on the trail make it for a annoying and disappointing experience.

Incredible.

Left the Iller Creek trailhead at 6:00pm, perfect time to arrive at the top for the sunset vista, which was brilliant with the hazy smoke and lined with jet lines. When we arrived at the granite outcroppings lit purple like an Instagram purple from the alpine glow.

2 guys were rappelling down, a few other solo walkers journeyed by and said hi.

We hardly needed our headlamps on the way down (at first) because of the skyline of Spokane Valley, (mainly Sprague). The cicadas were in chorus on either side of the trail. We arrived at our car around 8:00 in total darkness and there were still 4 more vehicles in the parking lot.

Read the reviews & hit the trail on Friday 8/31/18 with my small terrier. Great visas, clean trails & nice people. Had a wonderful time & plan to return next month.

stay away from this trail of you're riding a horse. BMX and motorcycles pay no attention, accident waiting to happen!

Not allowing dogs ruins this trail

This is a technical strenuous moderate mountain bike ride. We started the trail from the Packsaddle area and climbed up to the top then rode down to the parking lot and out. The climb was more than I was used to and there were numerous root and rock steps to navigate. Not heavily trafficked but did run into hikers, trail runners and other mountain bikers on the trail. The trail is quite narrow in places. The trail marking isn’t as clear as I would have liked so bring a map with you. The weather finally cooled down a bit which was nice.

I park in the SnoPark lot at the intersection of Mount Spokane Park Drive and N Summit Rd. From there, cross the road to the Trail 131 trailhead. Follow 131 to the Bald Knob Picnic Area and head toward the road on the other side. Cross that portion of N Summit Rd and you'll see Trail 130. Follow 130 for about a mile and you'll come to the CCC Camp.

You'll want to take a moment to explore. From the stone walkway and steps leading to the cabin, to the stacked wood waiting to be burned in the fireplace inside, I almost wanted to set up camp myself.

From the CCC Camp, follow the dirt road until you see Trail 140 on your left. This is your final leg to the summit. One final push and the trail breaks into the parking lot by Chair One and the Vista House.

After taking in the setting sun and my fingers started to stop functioning from the cold, I knew I should probably head back down before dark, beings this is the only trail in my hiking history I've ever encountered a wolf on (most magical moment of my life).

I highly recommend exploring this little slice of Heaven in the summer!

Sometime in JUN JUL 18 this trail was decimated. Appears Mt SPOKANE Ski resort has added several new ski runs on that side of the mountain. If switchbacking turn after turn in very recent clear cuts. huge swaths down that side of the mountain then this your hell on earth. Concrete poured for the lifts. Bicycles have turned this into a talc like dust bowl. Views? You betcha cause all those ancient old growth trees are gone. If you’re a skier rejoice. Bikers should have it to themselves cause nobody in their right mind would waste time hiking here anymore. Gave 2 stars cause it’s close to the house. Be interesting to see how cougar deal with all this loss of habitat.

One side of the trail is basically just a wide dirt road and the second half of the trail is stomping through tall scratchy grass. The view of the city is great but as a whole this “trail” isn’t great.

great little hike. nice shade, and well groomed. definitely hike again.

Gets crowded with bikers and runners.
Fun little walk

Parked at the south trailhead for "Stevens Creek" off of Stevens Creek Road. Hiked a little under a mile to "Big Rock" and enjoyed the views of the Palouse to the South and Spokane Valley to the North. From where the Stevens Creek Trail meets the Iller Creek Loop at the top I recommend going down on the East (right) loop, as it is more exposed and steep, and then up on the West (left) loop, as it is shaded and less steep. Iller Creek Trailhead to the North off of Dishman Mica is also an access point for the entire area. Good trail for dogs, there is a creek along the west loop.

Great hike with beautiful views in all directions. A portion of the trail goes through the forest along a creek and makes it for a nice cool—down. The rocks are obviously amazing. Bring lots of water as it gets hot this time of the year! Very dog friendly. We will be back!

Great little trail just outside the city. We did ~5.8 miles in ~2.25 hours connecting different trails. Some flat, some paved, some rooty, some rocky, a few small hills for a little more challenge in some places. Ticks are definitely present now (mid-June). Lots of shade on most trails, but quite a bit of sun exposure too. Bring plenty of water in the summer heat. Saw lots of butterflies and dragonfly-like things, and one little bitty harmless snake off the path. The observation deck had some nice purple and orange wildflowers as well. Appreciated no traffic sounds. Will definitely come back.

This was a nice trail once you got to the wooden section off of the asphalt. Would recommend to friends.

A friend and I hiked part of the orange trail and all of the red trail on a recent Saturday. Our whole hike was about 7 miles. Even though we hiked during the middle of the day, the trail was partly shaded and comfortable in temperature. This was my first visit to Shawnee Mission Park, and it is beautiful! The visitor's center staff is very friendly and provides free detailed maps. Like some other reviews mention, there are some large rocks and tree roots on the trail. Since we were hiking, this was not a problem, but it may be a challenge for a beginning biker. I can't wait to go back and try the other trails!

Great views. Varied landscape. Clean, marked trails. Definitely will revisit this one.

Loved it!

This only shows a portion of the Mt. Kit Carson Trail to summit that starts at Trail 100. I accidentally deleted the recording of the majority of the trail. Regardless, this 6.1 mike trail is an out and back trail that is dog friendly and traverses through dense forest to arrive at a 360 degree view from the summit!

Most of the trail has only very slight elevation gain, the only exception being the initial section as you ascend Trail 110 where this recording took place and then another section near the summit.

This trip took us 3 hours, including a 10 minute rest at the top.

A great half- day hike!!

Decent hike for kids. Took 8 and 6 year old on it. Would do it again.

A very fun hike, especially if you start from the bottom at trail 110. The trails are very well groomed and the top is totally worth it.

needs better trail markers

Good trail for conditioning.

Went the other day after a rainstorm. It was very quiet, verdant and beautiful. I expected to be bombarded by mosquitos but was not (yay)! Quite a large trunk blocking trail 25 south of 411 intersection, but had no trouble getting over it. Expected the stream to have a bit of a flow of water after all the rain, but it was barely a trickle.

Majestic elevation, not for the weary of heart.

My go-to trails in the area. rocky, rooty, and varied.
