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.

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.

I did a longer version of this loop today, an awesome find. I followed the river up past the gun club, around the bend again, then looped back on trails 201 and 210 up a ridge. You get to be close to the river on the way out, and up above in a very scenic area on the way back. Very nice indeed. I'm glad it started getting dark when it did, otherwise I might have kept going along the river and missed this cool experience.

Great trail system. Not marked very well though and it's hard to a point to figure out which one to take if it's your first time. LOTS of HUGE Mosquitos so pack spray. We did about 3.6 miles total so you gotta know what trail to follow or you will do a longer hike. It was about 70 degree and that was plenty warm for this hike. Very good views of the river throughout and definently kid friendly

Trail wasn't marked very well but used a recorded track. Great trail, gorgeous views of the river and lots of different rocks! Not crowded at all on a week night.

Beautiful trail, multiple paths to take, mostly shaded, very well kept, pretty rocky at times, kid and dog friendly, multiple side trails leading down to River, absolutely loved it!
