This hike is the lesser known opposite end of the Little Spokane River trail that extends southeast from the Indian Painted Rocks parking lot past St. George's School. The elevation changes quite a bit on the far east of this route near Waikiki Road. The western half is more mellow and slightly more scenic. There are not any amazing viewpoints, but it is a pleasant and moderately challenging hike nonetheless.

This trail is one of those that doesn't really blow you away, but it is simple and pleasant enough that you wish you lived right by it and could walk it every day just to clear your head. It is one of the closest hikes to where I live, so it is definitely an easy fall-back if I don't feel like making other plans. That's basically what happened today. I had already done the full Knothead Loop before, so this section of it was nothing new. It was getting too late in the day to go anywhere else, so I decided to get at least a little hiking in, and this spot won out as a repeat.

this was a good place to go hike the trails for beginners and families. there was beautiful views and was very peaceful. there was also friendly people along the way. but not everyone that goes there follows the rules,such as no dogs. cause there was dogs on trail along with going in the water.
