It was a good hike, however I would rate it as easy to moderate. The camp ground where I parked was perfect for me, the trail wasn’t marked very well so I ended up exploring a bit more, nice switchbacks, very well maintained trails, and very popular....... many people were hiking it when I was there. Another great thing, the road into the camp ground is paved!

great little easy hike along the river with great chance to see some wildlife

We went with our dog and 18 month old on my husband's back. Trail is unmarked, we ended up going down some mountain bike trails, and came out in a neighborhood after an hour. It wasn't especially difficult, just easy to get lost.

Awesome hike! We saw 7 deer, 2 owls, 1 turkey and 2 rattle snakes!!! We almost stepped on the first one on the trail, so watch your step and be watchful at dusk!! Beautiful,quiet, and fun hike!!!!

As everyone has said, the first two miles are hiked along a fairly narrow ridge with some challenging terrain. Afterwards the trail becomes well groomed for easy cruising. The dense

Nice trail with good views

This was actually longer than stated (about 12 at least). Some nice ridge walking in the early part of walk. We were disappointed that there was no noticeable summit. Early August walk included lots of wasps/yellow jackets. Trail was quiet and easy to navigate. We would consider it a moderately difficult trail.

Good view of the city at the top, but the hike is mediocre at best. Lots of bikes...

I have done this trail multiple times, but I admit that the first time I was somewhat let down by the waterfall you experience about 1/2 of the way through, as it was more a cascade than a admirable falls. That being said, this trail is very pleasant, and long, but for the most part is accessible by a variety of walkers/hikers/runners. There are some switchback climbs in the middle part, so if one is fatigued already, this might present a challenge, but an advantage is that this trail is mostly shaded, and fallows a creek for the first (or last 1/3) , depending on where you start. This trail can be deceptive, as its accessibility can disguise how long it takes to complete it. A friend and I ended up doing the last 1/3 of the gradual descent in the dark in Oct of 2016, as we mis judged the level of daylight we had. Another thing to watch for is the beginning area is surrounded by swampy wetlands, and your feet may become quite wet trying to traverse it, even on marked trails. Overall, a great family hike, easily accessible by car.

Great for a rider

Took my wife and teenage son and our dog. Great day for a short hike, and the Thimble Berries were plentiful!

My history with Antoine Peak is one of sheer frustration.

1st attempt: Got lost.

2nd attempt: Got lost again.

3rd attempt: Got lost in a blizzard. NEVER AGAIN.

Well, with the recent buzz about the re-vamped trail and shiny new trail markers I decided to give it a go once again. And I am so glad I did.

Antoine Peak's conservation area covers 1,076 acres in the Spokane Valley. It's summit offers 360-degree views of the region - Liberty Lake sparkles to the south with Mount Spokane and the Selkirks towering to the north. There is no shortage of breathtaking sights on this beautiful hike.

Early summer brings an abundance of wildflowers and candy-coated skies at sunset unparallel to other times of the year.

The new and improved trail system offers great signage meaning getting lost should be difficult to do. It also means you can determine how far you want your hike to take you as all markers give distance and direction. My pup and I did the loop from the Brevier Road trailhead. It leads you up to the summit and down around the Emerald Necklace loop along the base of the mountain back to where you started. The sounds of nature were absolutely spectacular...until they stopped altogether and I couldn't help but remember stories of cougar sightings on the hillside.

Don't let that stop you from visiting this beautiful trail right in our backyard though. Just be aware of your surroundings.

July - Summer

Nothing particularly spectacular about this trail. You can get some nice views of Spokane Valley and Liberty Lake, but aside from that, not much else to see.

The trail is very well maintained, and is mostly out in the open. The trail was very hot, and it was very dusty because of this. In most areas it was very wide which allowed two people to walk abreast.

The trail is mostly flat, but there is some elevation gain as you approach the peak. As some other people have noted, the AllTrails loop isn’t entirely accurate anymore, as one of the sections we followed clearly hadn’t been used in a long while.

Parking is free and is quite large.

Remember to bring water! Especially for the dogs, there is no water access on this trail.

As I usually say for this type of trail, not something I’d go out of my way for, but definitely worth checking out if you live near by.

Took this with friends and family. Very well maintained and beautiful trail. Youngest member of our group was 5 and made it well.

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.

Lots of trail markers but this hike in red doesn’t include the whole loop. Technically the necklace expands above what’s mapped out here if you follow trail markers and not this app. If you go off the red trail here your distance increases from 4.6 to closer to 7 miles.

excellent trail. shaded for the most part. We went counter clockwise around the loop and it was great.

Very nice trail not to close to the city. Although I would say it’s more for biking it was still a great trail if you’re looking for something not difficult but a little challenge.

June - Late Spring \ Early Summer

This loop trail offers some scenic views and solitude if your willing to go the full 8 miles. At a decent pace with no stops, we were able to hike the whole loop in about 3 hours.

The beginning of the trail doesn’t offer much other than some easy trail along a creek. After going deeper though the trail shows off a bit more with some dense groves and a beautiful rock slide waterfall at about the halfway point.

There is some elevation gain so prepare for a few switchbacks, but nothing too strenuous.

The trail is mostly shaded by the surrounding forest, so there is plenty of shade throughout. There are also multiple creeks for your dog companions to drink and wet their feet in.

For those looking for a longer or more epic hike, there is a branching trail around the halfway point that leads to a peak.

There is a nice large parking spot that fits multiple vehicles, but a $2 fee per person is required.

Overall a pretty hike that’s worth doing again if you are willing to go the whole 8 miles.

Clean, well-kept, and challenging. We did the full loop... clockwise... which seemed to be the wise choice as there were some long, steep grades along the horse side of the trail that, while difficult to descend, would have been much more difficult to ascend.
Plenty of shade on a hot, 90 degree, mid-day hike. The waterfalls were pretty, but not free-falling. The cabin has been restored a couple of times, so it’s really just a tin-sided shelter. We were a bit let down, hoping it was going to be an old, rustic cabin. Still cool. It tools us nearly 3.5 hours to complete the entire 8+ mile loop.

Nice cool trail

Great hike, nice bit of a challenge for beginning hikers or a more chill hike for more advanced hikers. The front is pretty exposed so don’t go when it’s too hot but the back is nice and shaded.

beautiful trail!

it has some steeper inclines but was beautiful and well worth the time

The interpretive trail signs are great, and a good motivator for small hikers. There were a couple logs across the trail, but nothing we couldn’t climb over/around.

The trail was very clean and well kept. I wish that there are more signs and directions to tell you where you are at or how far to the waterfall and etc. from the parking to the waterfall and back was a little over 6miles. We didn’t get to the waterfall after hiking over 3miles and we started to wonder somehow we missed it (because there are no signs at all) but we weren’t! so, it’s more than 2.5 miles to the waterfall. going is up and up so coming back is faster. it was a great hiking!! nice view and pretty flowers :)
