This hike is the lesser known opposite end of the Little Spokane River trail that extends southeast from the Indian Painted Rocks parking lot past St. George's School. Th elevation changes quite a bit on the far east of this route near Waikiki Road. The western half is more mellow and slightly more scenic. There are not any amazing viewpoints, but it is a pleasant and moderately challenging hike nontheless.

Great 2.5 hr loop near town will be back

Nice easy trail

No dogs allowed

Parking lot was packed so I figured trail would be high traffic. Turns out everyone goes there to kayak, the trail was completely empty. Plenty of shade, quiet, and an awesome view.

if you want an easy hike, just do the painted rock trail. knothead summit is climb, be prepared. well worth the trek up.
