Very easy afternoon hike with my dog, but the trails aren't very well marked and we got a bit lost. Ended up behind some people's private residence. Watch out for broken glass, liter, etc. Didn't see any homeless or gang activity, but lots of tagging and obvious beer drinking going on up there.

beautiful views! trail isn't stroller friendly though so if hiking with a little one I'd recommend a carrier/pack

I thought this was a great trail close in town good change in land scape good views and some up and down terrain. The map is wrong when you get to the last .6 mile mark make sure you take that left if you follow alltrails map the road dead ends at a private fence about 1/2 mile other than that it's great with the other trails you can check out. On one of the little side hikes we come across a couple coyote pups napping in the sun. If you use trekking poles you might want to bring them on this one some good up and down but not very long.

Took my 19month old son and dog on this hike and it was very nice, some parts were kind of washed out and tons of mosquitoes, make sure to bring lots of bug spray.

Wonderful. Not too crowded, includes stairs and markers throughout. Very extensive system. Easy to get lost. Good in every season.

This is a moderate loop of almost 5 miles, walking uphill along a stream for half of it and downhill with terrific views of the Spokane Valley for the other half. There is an option of taking a 2 mile out and back trail to see the Rocks of Sharon which we did. Worth the extra couple miles! Beautiful sweeping views of the Palouse and Steptoe Butte in the distance. And a great place to stop for lunch! Read a review on the Washington Trails Association website suggesting the trail be done counter clockwise and I would agree. Best views that way! Be warned!!! Wear bug spray!! And bring extra. The first half follows a stream with armies of mosquitoes! The trailhead has a history of vehicle break-ins so don't leave valuables in your car.
