The trail is easy to moderate with some areas of steep ascent and descent, caution should be used when going through these areas as they can be slippery from gravel or ice later in the season. This hill begins by going over rolling hill features which end in a rock crag on Browns mountain.

So happy to see this area being developed for hiking so close to town. This trail’s first mile is my favorite with beautiful meanderings through forest, reminding me of the western side of the Iller creek loop. After the first mile you have crossed over the top of Dishman hill to the eastern side and you are on an old road as you descend through grassy meadows in the sun for the next mile. The loop in the middle section as you return up the hill to the west is not necessary, and in fact one side of it is very steep. Note the topo and elevation to assess whether you want to take that section. Today was dry, but with much rain, the terrain would be very slippery and good shoes a must. I ended my 6 miles by wandering out of the Blue Bell loop from the parking lot. It was a nice level add on to get my mileage up to 6 miles.

Great time hiking with my boys, but watch for ticks. We came home with 20+ latched onto pants, shirts, pack and our dog.

Loads of wildflowers. I got there at 6am and saw very few people. Fairly clearly marked, only got thrown off by the private property. Good leg workout.

This was a great trail! We hiked it on May 2nd and the wildflowers were all blooming. There’s a lot of options to go off path. I recommend having your map handy. There’s a lot of up and down. All of the trails off the main path are very steep. The first part of the trail is nice and shady, but the rest has lots of sun. If you burn easily and plan to be out in the afternoon, make sure to bring a hat and sunscreen. Lovely hike and highly recommend.

Trail itself is pretty even. Moderate is an accurate description. Undulating hills. Open fields and intermittent shade. Be sure to wear sunscreen. Would be best early morning as it’s a pretty warm trail.

Easy-Moderate hike with great views of Mt. Spokane, Spokane Valley and Mica Peak. Great for trail running because there are basically no loose rocks or heavily rooted areas.

It was a fun trail over all. Went early enough so the mud was frozen but on the way back it was muddy. The trail has a lot of elevation change. We passed some people that said they found ticks but didn't.

Fun trail! Gorgeous views. Lots of people. Very wet. Tennis shoes not recommended, boots would be better to avoid getting soaked feet. Nice moderate trail with a lot of fun variations in terrain. Very dog friendly.

Great tail for a walk, run, or hike. Everyone and their dogs were friends. Not too many people out this morning on the trail, which was perfect. Not much mud or snow, so perfect for walking shoes. Loved the range of elevation!

Beautiful hike. Views of all the surrounding areas. Around 1 inch of snow on the trail. First part of the trail before the decent down the back is popular, but I was the only one on the back section. Wore microspikes which were helpful although back side of the trail, the snow was sticky. Lots of people out with dogs and kids for the first section of the hike. Surrounding neighborhoods/private property mean you can hear more than just nature sounds, but it was a great hike for being so close.
