It was a great hike! I went out to the park and back. At that point the trail was surrounding a residential area.

HikingGreat!

There is trash and broken glass by the parking area so be careful when you bring children, dogs or bicycles. After that the (area) trail is beautiful and offers a lot to see (even wildlife like white-tailed deer and chipmunks) and to do for people who like hiking, running and mountain biking. That is the reason why it can get busy especially on the weekends so be aware of that. Bring your phone for navigation i didn't see one single sign and don't bother going further than polly judd park. That is in my opinion where the trail should have ended.

HikingGreat!

I’m new to the area and I have been looking for an a$$-kicking trail! Found it!! I can knock out several miles in an hour on this trail! The other people complaining are crazy!! This trail was steep and awesome for a good quad workout!! Will definitely be going back!

This was the first and last time I will hike this trail. I have hiked a lot of the trails in the Spokane area with my dog and this was the worst. I hiked from the parking lot off of 57th. There are no porta potties in the parking lot and the parking lot had a lot of broken glass in it. The parking lot was also fairly small. It could fit about 10 to 15 cars so if you go at a busy time you might not find a place to park. The trail leading from the parking lot is fairly steep and covered with loose dirt and small stones which makes it a bit slippery. The area of the path below the parking lot was also covered with broken glass. Luckily my dog didn’t cut her feet on any of it. Once you get past the first half mile decline the paths split and level out. They are still covered with loose dirt so the places where there are steep declines are still a bit slippery. Overall once you get back into the side trails it’s not too bad. Just watch out for the slippery areas.

Eh. Definitely is not an “easy” climb, definitely a moderate trail. None of the trails are marked and you will find yourself going in circles for hours just trying to get back to the parking lot. I found myself climbing up HUGE hills just to get back on the right trail. Not much of a view, you are surrounded by trees and power lines. The entrance/exit that is right by Rocket Market is SUPER steep to the point it’s nearly impossible to get up without slipping. Lots of bikers, be aware of your surroundings! Do not go on a hot day and don’t forget the bug spray!

This is a favorite hike. It is so easy to access and there are many options once you are on the bluff. Our typical choice is to start at the parking lot near 57th and Hatch and end at Polly Judd Park on 14th. By continually choosing the trail that keeps you fairly level it is a 4.25 mile point-to-point route starting in a forested area and ending on an open bluff. Two adults and two 10 year olds completed this in 1:40 at an easy pace. We love this trail for it ease, nearness and scenery.

The start of the trail from the parking lot had me a little disappointed as it seemed to be going down a an old road with lack luster ponderosas and minimal undergrowth, but as we meandered north the trail was more like a true trail and the vegetation thicker in spots. Dropping down into the valley near the river has the best views and more lush vegetation, including wildflowers. The trails look as if frequently used for mountain bikers, but we were fortunate to not run into any today, only some trail runners and hikers. I would imagine these trail get very hot and dry as the summer progresses due to the western exposure. Be sure to pack plenty of water.
