WalkingGreat!

nice little walk through the woods to a beach with nice sand ! I can imagine it would be a great swimming and kayaking spot and I enjoyed the pretty much flat trails with some nice views also went over to the waterfall and enjoyed the view of the sunset over the water completely alone! perfect sweater weather, about 55 degrees.

Nice lake views but the trail had a lot of overgrown brush in the way of the path. It was still a nice short hike with a few hills to get your heart rate up a bit.

You can see the waterfall from a distance but to see it up close you will need some type of flotation device as the waterfall is tucked in a corner

My husband and I loved hawk creek! The waterfall is in plain sight, you don’t have to hike to it at all. So beautiful! We tried finding the cave but couldn’t find it (I would recommend downloading the map beforehand because there’s no service out there). We ended up taking another trail, right over by the boat launch. It curves around the lake and eventually ends in a dead end by a nice little sandy beach that we played at for a bit. Beautiful area, very easy to hike. A little bit of an incline

May 2020– a few different trails to explore. Water is low this time of year so you can walk down to the stream where there would usually be a boat launch. From there you can see the waterfall off to your left (which you either have to cross the creek to walk to or go via the road) and more creek to the right. The main path is kid friendly (7, 8, 10, 18yo), you can walk down to the creek at several points and play in the water or you can continue the easy hike to the more expansive beach area in which you can walk endlessly in sand or go for a swim. A little more difficult hike is off to the side of the parking area in which you can see a cave in the near distance, we waked that without the kiddos as there are some snakes (a bull snake we saw and possibly rattlesnakes that we didn’t see) and some loose rock areas that may be dangerous for the real little ones. Overall it is a very beautiful spot to hike and see the best of nature. Camping spot is teenie tiny and first-come-first-serve, only a few viable family-style sites...so be prepared to be cramped if people get there first. Overall I highly recommend checking this place out!

Beautiful area with much to explore! Short easy hike following the creek to the west of parking lot to the beach and lake. Steeper separate hike from the parking lot to the North to find some awesome caves and sweet view of the whole valley. We went with 3 kids (4/7/11yo) and they made it with not too much trouble but some parts are steep/slick/rocky. Trail to the beach is easy. Waterfall is right off the campground and so easy to enjoy! We went May 1st 2020 and creek water was very low. But we still enjoyed swimming in the lake and lots of sandy beach! Campground and restrooms are closed for Covid-19, so make sure you “pack-it-out”. Also NO cell service or gps reception even for this app WITH Verizon, so save map pics or download ahead of time. However we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and loved all the wildlife we saw! Bald eagle, geese and goslings, hawks, peacock, deer, wild turkeys, snakes, baby birds in a nest in the cave, and farm animals along the way! Next time we will bring kayaks and swim suits and hopefully camp! (Also campground looks fairly primitive and small with 2 pit toilets, 1 water spigot for the whole campground, and each site is small with little privacy. But it’s right by the waterfall and waterfront!

No cell service so plan ahead but insanely pretty. Parked past the hawk creek campground and followed the trail up along the creek then came back to the waterfall. Lots of pretty wildflowers. Opens up to a huge sandy beach that was fun to let the kids run around and throw rocks. On our way back we saw a rattlesnake by the bathrooms.

We hiked to the cave. Park ranger warned us about rattle snakes in the cave. We figured we’d just stay vigilant and careful. Path up to cave is very steep but doable. About 15 feet before the cave/end of trail, there were some outcroppings of rocks on one side of path and lots of brush and rocks on other side of very narrow path. Also pretty steep. Sure enough a rattle snake was curled up on the ground under a small rock overhanging. It rattled at me and scared the hell out of me and the kids!! Just be careful if you go up there!! Overall a great place to explore. Beautiful scenery from the top of the hill with the cave . Fun to explore the creek and path to river. P.S. Also, want to add that I didn’t see any posting about no dogs? And the park ranger talked to us with the dog. So I think they’re allowed?

Great family hike! The waterfall was still beautiful and flowing eventhough the water was low. Trail turns into a sandy beach. The water is clear but there were signs of dense algae. Kids enjoyed picking up crawdad claws in the sandy shoreline...then brought them home...and stunk the whole house up GROSS LOL family memories, love the hike!

This was fun/different...about 1.5 in the sand each way...so 3 miles total. We made it all the way to the cave with 3 kids 7/10/12. So no too hard for families. There are multiple ways to make it to the cave, so don’t think your wrong when you get there...but the easiest way I guess is to walk all the way to were the beach ends and climb upwards. You can only make it before the lake starts filing up.

If you guys are looking for the cave, it’s not on the trail. You’ve gotta start in the RV park where the waterfall is and walk the road where it turns into one lane to the boat dock. (Not the wooden dock in the RV park). When you get to the concrete parking lot to the boat dock just look North up the hill and you’ll see the giant looming cave/hole in the hill. Walk up there, it’s not a bear cave it’s a lava tube(: this walk is only about 50m from where you parked and is an easy walk up on a little trail from foot traffic. Amazing view, you can see the emerald water and the tall rock canal leading to Franklin D. Roosevelt lake. This is a super gorgeous place for being out in the middle of nowhere but also really close to Spokane.

This is not a hiking trail; simply a short stroll from the camping area. Waterfall is not always accessible based on rising water levels due to dam. If you’re looking for serenity or a magical getaway swimming hole, this is not it!

Hot today. Supposedly there’s a cave about 2m past the end of the trail, but my 9 & 11yo hiking buddies are ere done for so we didn’t make it that far.
