Don’t go for a while! I usually love this trail, but my dog and I are covered in ticks. Like 30 or so.

This trail is covered in ticks. Boyfriend and I had at least 20 on both of us, and over 25 on the dog. We didn’t walk the whole thing due to there being too many ticks. The trail was nice, saw 2 deer and lots of turkey. Very easy walk. Bring extra clothes to change into for after your walk.

Gorgeous hike! Could walk here every day and see something new. Family friendly/paved trails throughout. Saw plenty of wildlife including a moose that we kept our distance from!

The gravel path is too loose for biking. our kids could not do it and it was very difficult for me riding a cyclocross bike pulling a bike trailer. Mountain biking the trail would work OK.

Walked this today with pup and kids. Easy paved path. Beautiful and quite a few walkers out enjoying the day. We stopped for a break to find snakes along the path which was really neat. Some geese and ducks are present. Still a bit early for their babies but should see them arriving soon!

One of my favorite parts of Turnbull. My kids and I always enjoy this area. Watched a porcupine climb a nearby tree one visit at this spot.

I take my 2yo son here on almost a weekly basis and he loves it! We’ve seen porcupines, moose, badger, coyotes, deer, elk, and a huge variety of birds and plants! One day I counted 36 different species of birds in less than 1 hr in this area. I love it here.

The park is beautiful , well maintained , friendly people , along , the hiking trails . Beautiful park to relax & get away . If you get lucky , you may run across , the old moose that visits the park . Great place to check out .

Started on the Bluebird trail and then connected to other Turnbull trails. Hiking the road is surprisingly nice. Very little traffics. Nice surface. Shade. The Bluebird trail is also nice except for heavy gravel in center section where shared with service road. Not a good surface for hiking.

The signage will actually call this Pine Lake Loop. If you take just the loop from the parking area it is 1.3 miles. If you add the loop to the visitors center (follow the path into the trees and up toward the trees then turn LEFT toward the visitors center) it'll be the larger loop shown on the alltrails map and that's maybe 2ish miles. Visit this area at sunset! Incredible colors reflecting off the little lakes!

It sounds like some people are confused by this trail and I've done it many times (I live in Pullman and visit Turnbull probably twice a month because it is one of my favorite places in Eastern WA). At any rate you get to the Stubblefield Lake Loop by starting on the Pine Lakes Loop. At the back of the loops the tail splits and goes into the trees, take that up and then turn right (away from the visitor's center and toward the road you drive in on) and hike in this direction. The road will split- you can either go up the hill or toward the trees, it is a loop so it doesn't matter. You are now on the trail! I've hiked this in every season now and I think late spring is best for this trail because although it can be muddy if it has rained, the flowers are beautiful in the fields. June was best. Winter can be icy but it still do-able if you have the right supplies. Autumn is nice too, but the auto tour area trails have slightly better colors/views.

beautiful little treck around the pond. love that trail and would go back any day :)

$3 parking permit required. started on a 1.25 mile loop around a pond, then a 5.5 ish mile on a gravel road meant for an auto tour. not sure if that was meant to be the trail though? it was great for my husband to break in his new boots as well as test the waters for upping our mileage for future hikes. beautiful day for a nice flat, long walk!

This is a good length to walk. Not a lot of cover/shade out past the first half mile. Took the kids out and they did great. We attempted the other loop but found it a bit confusing because there is a small nature trail that is paved and then the 5.7 mile gravel road trail that this encompasses. Altogether we had a great time and there was plenty to see.

I especially love this in early spring. It seems the lake disappears in summer but magically reappears after every winter.

Great loop, easy to connect to some other paths. I love Turnbull and go about once a month. All trails are more of a walk than a hike, however- not much elevation change out there.

Quick little loop.

trail was nice but TICKS LIKE CRAZY! stopped to get the dogs a quick drink of water and they were both COVERED with ticks. make sure to do a flea and tick treatment before going and possibly bring a tick remover for before getting back in car. trail is amazingly gorgeous and will go again but LOTS of ticks at this time.
