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.

Beautiful hike with a variety of landscapes and views. Begin the hike at the trailhead along trail 25. Take the branch up to the photo site for an amazing view of the mtns and river. End the hike along the river on the path. Great hike!

Beautiful terrain and views. Some parts of the trail could cause a twisted ankle if hiker is not careful.

Great walk on a Monday- saw a moose on one of the little trail detours I took! I wasn’t expecting a trail across the street from a major road to be that wild!!

Beautiful hike early in the morning.
The cool air smelled so fresh like the smell of pine from all the tall pine trees.
Colors were amazing and sitting on the rocks near the river and listening to the sound of the small waves and swirls was very relaxing.
Will go again in spring!

Awesome amount of things to stop and enjoy. Beautiful atmosphere. ThxSpokane. #PeacfulSoul

Nice trail, beautiful day and very few people (it’s a Tuesday). Saw an Osprey and enjoyed the many side trails.

Chill afternoon hike, TONS of people. Had fun on all the random side trails when we could escape the crowd. There really is a path for almost everyone, and I wouldn’t mind exploring more of the offshoots.

fun hike with great river views. Alot of diffrent paths to take.

Amazing trail! But If you are looking for peace and quiet this is not the trail for you. Parents do not keep their children in line and some parents allow their children to throw rocks from the top of the trail. If you near the water prepare for a head wound. The water is crystal clear, cold and refreshing. Many dogs on the trail but did not see dog pop. The ppl we did see were super friendly except for the ppl allowing their children to throw rocks. Even when we told them there could be ppl down there, the parents had no respect or regard for others. The trail is not marked so we ended up walking an extra 2 miles. Wear closed toe shoes as there are a lot of rocks on the trail.

I lost my keys today on this trail :/ if you find them can you please turn them into the ranger station?

I love this hike. It’s pretty level with slight incline but it’s really beautiful and well trafficked so that means safe. You can feel safe on this trail if you are alone. You pass someone quite often so as this isn’t a private secluded trail, it’s still a nice little distance for a quick run or hike. Lots of small paths and trails cut away and those can be more secluded and add some more trail time to your hike. The main loop is the busier route. Easy parking but a discover pass is required (or you can pay for the day) A few benches along the hike to take a break and picnic tables near the bridge.

One of my favorite places to hike and to go swimming!

Went the other day after a rainstorm. It was very quiet, verdant and beautiful. I expected to be bombarded by mosquitos but was not (yay)! Quite a large trunk blocking trail 25 south of 411 intersection, but had no trouble getting over it. Expected the stream to have a bit of a flow of water after all the rain, but it was barely a trickle.

Very beautiful and relaxing. Love the bridge and the views. The huge rocks are awesome! Nice place to have a picnic.

Beautiful place for a family hike!

Crowded on the weekends, but great id-week and early in the am..

Fun easy trail. Fun to do mid-week with the pups.

This trail seems endless! There are several off shoots that once familiar with the area, you can make up a walk as long as you like. I do anywhere between 4-8 miles when I go.

Pretty disappointed with the scenery on this trail. You get a good viewpoint about 2 miles in and then the creek about 4 miles in; both great but very short lived and the rest of the hike is pretty bland. Also walking along a gravel road with cars passing by, and then later on the paved Centennial trail isn’t my idea of a hike. A good workout at points, but there are a lot of better hikes in this area.

Amazing trail. My dog and I ran it in February, and you have to ford 3-4 creeks. The last one ("Deep Creek") is a bit adventurous, but that's probably because the waters were higher than normal. Was totally feasible though, beautiful, and so much fun!!!

Loved the bridge, water was high and fabulous. Easy enough for kids, great scenery, but busy! There was no pavement in this trail, that is on the bowl and pitcher trail.

So beautiful and tons of different trails to take. we walked along trails down river and it was amazing!

Well defined, easy trail with some great views along the river! Perfect for walking the pup who isn’t quite used to hiking. Only issue for us was crossing the bridge first. Myself (and turns out my dog too) are afraid of bridges with rushing water underneath, ha!

Loved the water and how it rushes against the rocks. Something peaceful about this place.

Great hike, first one of the year! Happened to be on the same day of a local run... helped mark the trail!

One of my favorite hikes. Really easy to get to. When the creek bed is dry it’s a blast to walk through, just watch your feet!

Great hike today! The weather was nice and the sun was out finally! The creek is still pretty high so no walking down in the creek bed yet. Hopefully next month it will dry out.

Beautiful view with wildflowers. Creek was still a little high but didn’t stop us on our adventure

It’s was a pretty walk.
