Such a pretty hike! Parking lot was full but only ran into people twice on the trail. I did this hike with someone who doesn’t do a ton of hiking and they found the incline to be a bit challenging. Worth continuing north down Chatcolet road for a dip in the lake after the hike!

Lots of wild flowers and mushrooms. Would recommend doing the look clockwise for better views of the lake.

Went last weekend! Overall a beautiful trail. Lots of downed trees and ran into a moose. No warning signs for wildlife (which I supposed it is pretty far out there) which may be dangerous. Had to turn around and wasn’t able to complete the whole thing because of the moose.

The views at top are amazing. There were a lot of down trees. In fact we saw one fall. It was fascinating and frightening at the same time. Trail was a little rocky in some places.

Nice trail; parking lot was completely full. Went with my daughter and pup, it was a sunny day. Lots of other people out, glad we checked it out.

Great trail for the whole family. The trail was clear and seems to be draining well. This is worth your time and you know you have plenty of time right now.

a nice trail with a great view of the lake and mountains in the distance. a little steep in places but nothing outrageous. path is mostly dirt with a few rocky areas. considering the overcrowded parks in Spokane, the seclusion of this place was a breath of fresh air... literally.

Lots of downed trees but the trail was cut open so no problem. We suggest going clockwise on the loop or you keep looking backwards at the view like we did.

This is my new favorite trail! It’s challenging but fulfilling. It is definitely a moderate hike; there are more easy parts than harder. The view is amazing. Worth the trip.

State Park with $5 day park fee. Park where the directions lead you and enter off to the right ( do not enter at Whitetail Loop). Did this with two adults, one older. Had two kids with us 3 + 7 years old. All in sneakers, muddy but manageable!) They walked it with no issues. Very kid friendly! Beautiful covered mossy forests in the beginning, narrow trail and rock beds that lead to the view points at the top! Benches and signs to get you where you need to go the whole way. Picnic bench for snacks and rest at the top. Minor snow spots for February! Will be back to do this again. 3.1 mile loop.

the trail is narrow in some places but easy to follow. I saw several whitetail deer, a woodpecker, squirrels, and osprey. the view from the top is great! I stopped often to take in the scenery and watch birds, so I did the 3 mile loop in about 90 minutes. The elevation gain wasn't too bad, especially considering the pay off. There were quite a few animal tracks in the fresh mud and I didn't encounter any other humans on the trail.

This Trail is enchanting! We enjoyed all the different sections. We felt transported to hobbiton! We loved the switch backs up the hill side and spent time at the top enjoying the gorgeous views! Highly recommend! Our four kids loved it too
