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 ridge overlooking the hwy 195 valley is breathtaking! This is a beautiful and peaceful trail. My favorite time is early morning when most of the trail is shaded but the valley is lit up!

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.

Nice trail network with a lot of options. We only did a couple miles as a short jaunt after dinner. Beautiful view of the valley at sunset!

My favorite trail in the area! Amazing turns and elevation change. Great for mountain biking too! Literally going along cliff bluffs over looking the valley!

It is all downhill in and uphill out. Got some great areas to walk. Perfect for dogs or mountain biking!

great trail! we've driven past this overlook so many times and didn't realize it was a trail entrance. takes you down and up through the valley and beside the golf course. lots of flowers, rocks, and burned trees. definitely a confusing mix of paths, but great it you want to get lost and relax or go on a trail run.

Trails can be confusing! I tried to stay on the alltrails path and ended up on lots of side shoots. They loop back and enter twine. I could spend days out here!

Great for trail running, walking and hiking. Trails are unmarked but super easy to navigate. The trails are extremely clean and nicely maintained (thanks to the Friends of the Bluff). I honestly love these trails!

Fun trail just below the side of the road. You can't see cars, but houses occasionally are visible. You're more in the forest towards the 57th end of the trail, which is way better. I did it backwards, so that was cool to end up getting deeper into the woods. Pretty narrow, so people had to make way for the runner or biker coming towards you. Cool views of Latah Valley.

This is one of my favorite local trials as there are so many options to make it as difficult or easy as you want. Take trails down to the golf course for something a little more challenging or stay near the top for something easier. The trails are unmarked, but ultimate you just need to head up to get to street level. There can be bike riders, hikers, and runners all on the trails, but I find people are really considerate, fabulous views along the way!

It was a nice hot day but my friend and I got extremely lost and the trails were very confusing, we ended up popping out by eagle ridge and the golf course and had to walk along the highway and up hatch rd to get back to the car because we knew we couldn't figure it out if we were to go back on the trails. So if you would like to go on this hike I recommend you bring lots of water because we ran out, and good luck to you

Run these trails pretty much weekly. Beautiful year round. Can see lots of hikers, runners, bikers and dogs, but can time right and see no one. Definitely a piece of heaven when living an urban life.

Nice and easy trail for hiking/biking,nothing too crazy. This trail is located on the South Hill. I wouldn’t do the trail if you are looking for amazing views. Overall, enjoyable and relaxing hike.

We went with our dog and 18 month old on my husband's back. Trail is unmarked, we ended up going down some mountain bike trails, and came out in a neighborhood after an hour. It wasn't especially difficult, just easy to get lost.
