Nice easy trail. Beautiful little creek with turtles and frogs, even saw a train go by.

A great low-intensity walk. The paved trail leads right to fish lake. Not much shade along the way, bring water and sunglasses for sure.

Nice trail. I personally feel the rating of moderate is inaccurate, should be rated as easy. Very little elevation change and the surface is paved but can feel long by the time you get back to your vehicle. If you venture into the Cheney wetlands trail(at about 3.5 miles from Fish lake) the surface changes to gravel and grass two track. Still remains relatively flat but a lot of beautiful scenery. Nice outing today. My wife and I logged 8.91 miles out and back with a short venture into the wetlands(ran short on time to venture further). Plan to do it again but take in more of the wetland's scenery.

This is one leg of the Columbia Plateau Trail. This trail is paved, and excellent for hiking or bikes. This follows an old railroad grade. It has a lake and small park at one end, and an ample parking area at the other.
