    Arguably the best long hike within two hours of Spokane, a must do for any hiker. The trailhead begins at Farragut State Park and, after a mile or so, joins the seven mile Scout trail to Bernard Peak. There are several fantastic viewpoints of Lake Pend Oreille Looking north and Mount Spokane toward the West. Add the moss covered rock formations and cliffs at the beginning of the hike; beautiful groupings of trees; occasional stream crossings; and long sections of uphill climbing to a summit overlook...you've got a winner. There is a great turnaround spot at mile 5 (measured from the trailhead) with outstanding views through a break in the trees. This would cuts about six miles off round trip. With the exception of the reaching the summit, which is a bit unremarkable, you really don't gain much. These last few miles are heavily forested and offer limited to no views of the surrounding area. Still, I don't miss an opportunity to summit a mountain. I imagine the trail can get busy, especially in the park, but last weekend I had the place to myself. You can't beat that! Highly recommended.
