Riverside State Park is a 10,000-acre camping park along the Spokane and Little Spokane rivers in Eastern Washington. The park supports a wide variety of recreational activities and is rich in history. Freshwater marshes, running rivers and beautiful countryside make up the terrain. The park also includes the Nine Mile Recreation Area, which is available for camping, picnicking, swimming, fishing and boating.

Foggy with drizzle, tried doing the loop today. Deep Creek is flowing and uncrossable. Trails are compact ice and mud. Yaktrax or spikes a must

great spot, easy to find. if you go right now (jan.) you might want to bring microspikes. the trail is iced over completely.
will be back when we get fresh snow to go snowshoeing

WAY too crowded!

A very peaceful walk during the lovely fall.

Very nice trail on a lovely, pretty day!

Fun had by all, excepts for beans

Beautiful day today!

Nice hike, fairly easy, the trail is a combo between walking along the river and a paved road. You have to walk on the road and then it turns into centennial trail which is paved. At least half of the trail is in paved road.

Parking is plentiful.

Very easy loop. Great for kids, lots of freedom for them to run. Busy yet still private. Love the different landscapes throughout loop.

Visiting from CA, was a nice place to take a morning run.

Great little trail.

Beautiful scenery.... Nice trail for an out of shape guy.

Very easy and flat little hike. I did it clockwise which seemed good. After crossing the bridge the first half is through the forest, no spectacular views but good enough. Then when you turn east the views of the river are very nice. Took an hour total including plenty of sightseeing and lazing around.

Awesome trail closer to 26 miles though

Nice hike with the kids and dogs. Trails are not marked very well and there are several spots that you could get on the wrong trail.

There is a nice view at one point..... It's a very nice loop but there are a lot of turn-offs so pay close attention to the map.

This is one of the best loops in Riverside Park that DOESN'T follow the river closely. Though the river is arguably the best feature of the park, this trail manages to provide constant engagement and interest without interacting much with the water. The climbs, views and variation in landscape are quite captivating.

Sooo beautiful. Went in spring and early summer. Great views. If you want to get to the bridge quicker you park at the lot further from spokane.

This already favorite area around Spokane was made all that much better by a super rare visit from my sister and family. No way to not give it 5 stars with that ultimate combo. This hike is a must-see for visitors to the area, one of the nicest spots along the Spokane River. Most people probably just do a short hike around Bowl & Pitcher like we did today. Further exploration, as I have been doing, reveals seemingly endless miles and connections with countless other trails in the area. Hopefully Spokane preserves this as a natural area for generations to come instead of caving into developer pressure or budget concerns.
