GPS coordinates for the trailhead were totally off but it’s easy to find on your own once you’re at the lake.

Directions take you to a dead end. Parked in the north parking lot instead. The first half of the hike was nice and peaceful around the water. Second half was in a neighborhood street.

The lake is an amazing spot if you have floaties, kayaks, paddle boards and the likes. Hike itself is easy with has decent views!

The best biking trail with all the views! Super easy to take the family for a run, bike ride or walk. Dog friendly too. Lots of shade as well.

This is one of my favorite easy trails. great for kids, and your fur kids. Easy to follow, does go a little into town, but you wont get lost! fun to see all the animals. There are porcupines out, just a heads up for dog owners. But all in all super easy and nice.

Did this trail on a bike with my sons toddler seat attached to the back. It completely circled the lake partly through the park and the rest on the road with a bike lane provide. It was pretty busy with lots of families out. The gps directions did take use to a dead end with only houses. if you continue going down the road until the end of the lake and keep following as it turns there is a parking lot and park for kiddos there as well!

I would recommend this trail for someone with kids or someone who wants to go for a stroll. But bring bug spray!

As lovely as you can imagine. Beautiful shoreline, nicely maintained asphalt trail, hills, rocks, trees and grass. Perfect Spokane county nature.

Nice trail for being close to home. Love walking around it. Has an awesome play area for little ones! They repaved it this year so it’s a great trail for pushing a stroller! It does go through the neighborhood but there is hardly ever any traffic and the random people you see are very friendly!!

the pave trail was perfect for a sunday stroll with our dog, but if you do the full loop you just end up walking through neighborhoods to get back. it’s kinda perfect for what it is, but i would recommend doubling back through the park.

I just bought a recumbent trike and am getting back in shape. This is a great beginner trail and if you combine all parts you can get almost 7 Miles riding. Great view and is very quiet. There is a restroom on the trail in the Medical Lake Park. Awesome to train without having to go to far on the open road.
