Got there at 6:30 am on this Friday morning and all parking spots were taken. I had to go to a different place since I wanted to hike this morning.

One of my favorite trails. You can pick all sorts of different trails to go up or down the mountain on the other side of the bridge. I did run into a few snakes in late June on the trail between the rocks and the river. Watch for the beautiful bald eagle and nest.

No shade at all. Very hot in direct sunlight. Pretty flat for the most part

I finally found the springs this time. The air was still cool and scent of wildflowers with the sound of the water and birds made it like paradise. The AllTrails app was showing me off the trail although I was on the trail which is a bit confusing. I didn't see the bridge that is mentioned in other reviews. Maybe I had to cross the water creek coming down from the springs? I will definitely go again. Saw all kinds of songbirds, two eagles and hummingbirds. But next time I won't forget the bug spray!

Great trail(s). It is kind on a “build your own adventure” because there are a lot of sub trails off the main trail with different terrains. Some sub trials we walked, others we hiked. Make sure you are respectful and stay out of the private property (fenced and labeled). We crossed over a bridge over water which was really neat. Other than that bring some bug spray, the mosquitoes were vicious.

Be mindful of all the signage and don’t wander onto the private properties that are marked. Follow Steven Diaz's shortened route (below) in order to avoid wandering onto private property where the landowners have not consented to public use. From what I can see, he did a great job of marking out the permitted access areas. Please, be respectful. This is a beautiful area and I would hate to see it closed down because day users are not being considerate of landowners' wishes. The scenery is absolutely lovely and its location can't be beat if you are a local in this area.

Nice trail but not well marked. Several times my map showed me off the trail and I felt I was on the trail.

Nice scenic trail, dog friendly. discover pass required, though there is some street parking. taking a left on the paved road will lead you to two bridges that cross the little Spokane. Secret waterfall if you take a right. Loop counter clockwise will be easier to avoid the private property areas.

This trail is partly on Washington Fish and Wildlife property and some private land that the owners allow hikers on. Be aware of private property signs on adjacent lands and please respect the private land owners wishes of keeping off their property. This is a great hike that crosses over the Little Spokane River and wildlife is present. Bald eagles, moose, coyote and even a bobcat has been seen here. It is pet friendly.

HikingPrivate property

So apparently someone submitted this trail that most of which is on private land owned by the Severn’s and Witherspoon’s. So let me clarify the boundaries; anything across the bridge going over the Little Spokane River is on the Severn property, which he allows people to hike onto. Anything else with private property and fencing is the Witherspoons property, which he strictly forbids anyone hiking on it, unless you get permission from him. I have received permission from him due to some hiking group affiliations I have. He doesn’t allow this for everyone and he was adamant about telling me that if I disrespect or harm the property of his he would not allow me on it. Now, I have a problem about the person that submitted this route that encroaches on his property and it may increase illegal trespassing onto his property and could cause issues with Fish and Wildlife and AllTrails for allowing to have the recorded trail submitted. I will shortly record a trail loop within the boundaries that will be around 3.2 miles (5k) that people can enjoy without risking getting caught and illegally trespass onto the private property. If you read this, please stay off the private property and respect all land owners wishes.

Great trail, close in and accessable for a quick hike. We do this hike often with our 8 yo and infant in a stroller. There are a few tough spots but easily overcome with an off-road stroller.

We attempted this 4 mile loop and we're confronted with missing trails junctions and private property with no trespassing signage. Altogether a nice hike, but further investigation is required.

After reading the reviews, I was excited to hike this trail and was hoping to see the waterfall/springs or cross the bridge. But unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find either one. The trail lead me to the private property area so I headed back. The walk was very nice with lots of shade and some views. But not what I was looking forward to. I’ll try it again, maybe I can get to cross the river.
