some washed out parts on the trail but otherwise great on mountain bikes 6/11/19

We got this from Out There magazine. It is not a hike, but a walk on fairly large forest roads to. Ell towers. Ok to stretch your legs.

Great hike! Wild flowers in full bloom. was hoping to see more wildlife but all I saw was a bunch of crows and a snake. The signage for the trail is good but the distances are a bit off. I got 5.2 miles for the necklace trail. Anyway...some great views and very quiet and peaceful!

This time of year in particular is perfect to go hiking here, what with the wildflowers, beautiful greenery, and open sky. Emerald Necklace is very different from the Eastern Trailhead. Notably, you scale along the mountain on the side that faces the valley, and it doesn't turn steep for a little bit. There's only a few portions that are truly steep. Long story short, the North side of this trail is the easiest method to reach the summit. This has slowly become my favorite location to hike, with this particular trail being easier to take friends on and enjoy the views with.

Great hike! Wildflowers are beautiful and abundant right now. It’s getting warmer out and lots of open areas so probably not as fun in July! Beautiful views at the top!

A little bit breezy to start but really beautiful with the wildflowers out! Always a good hike! Any season!!

Loved this hike. Beautiful open woodlands with wildflowers. We added a leg to the east to extend it. Parking lot at Emerald Necklace was open.

Loved this trail! Well groomed, beautiful on a sunny day. Saw a moose and quietly passed him by at a distance. Left my hat at the summit—green & white w/ an “R” logo—if anyone finds it!

I loved hiking this trail. The trails are well marked and when you get to the peak and start down the back the views are great and it's very quiet and peaceful, not tons of people. It was about a 2 1/2 hour hike for us. Definitely coming back to do it again. Was clear only a few muddy spots and lots of flowers.

The main entrance to brevier rd off of Forker is still closed, but if you keep going down Forker and take a right on Adams it connects to Brevier! Only about a two minute detour.

Initially took the wrong trail when I started my hike but it was okay because pretty much all the trails loop back to the same main trail. The trail was muddy is some spots but overall the ground was hardened. There is some steep spots and I hit a few areas where snow hadn't quite melted yet. Overall a really good hike though and some great views of Mt. Spokane and Spokane Valley. Dogs are also allowed on leash which is great! This hike is great for just a few hours out of the house or you can load up a heavy backpack to do some training. There are a ton of trails in the area you can follow as well if you're looking to spend a lot of time out and about!

Great hike! Very impressed- Just getting into this hiking thing and love it. Beautiful views and pretty easy actually. Did see some bear tracks- but no bears. Some snow and slick conditions, but with the right gear- no issues.

Little icy right now, but great trail!

Nice trail. Kid friendly. All trails isn't completely accurate on distance. The 4.6 mile loop would be challenging to do w kids as the original trail is overgrown. We followed the loop past that and it cuts back down to the all trails making it about 6 miles. Still worth it. Very beautiful.
