Great snowshoeing day. Beautiful view. If you want to cut the loop in half, follow 25 through the middle of the trail.

Quite rocky! I enjoyed it for the most part, but some of the craggy altitude climbs were a bit of a challenge.

I live near this trail and hike this area frequently. Beautiful trail, especially in the spring and early summer. Great views. Good workout if you want it to be.

Great trail. It can be a little difficult to follow an exact trail in riverside park. With this one you basically cross the street from the Carlson Road parking lot and go on the trail (not the paved centennial trail/road). Then you just keep going up as far as you can and you’ll end up on top of the ridge. Keep hiking until there’s an offshoot left right before you end up on a road. You may miss the left turn the first time but that’s okay, double back from the road and it’ll be right there. You’ll end up out at a wonderful point with a couple benches and views of Spokane, five mile, nine mile and beyond. Enjoy it. From there it gets more difficult to give you an exact trail. Basically you need to come down from the bench and head back toward Carlson road. There are a number of different ways to do this and once you’re familiar with the area you can choose based on how large or small of a loop you want to do. Getting familiar with the nine mile/seven mile area is well worth it as you’ll then have many potential loops at your disposal.

Best hike so far we have done in the riverside state park! Worth the elevation gains, great views!

Awesome hike. The rocky areas could be a challenge if your not careful. The creek crossings are pretty high so if you don’t mind getting wet it’s a great trail this time of year. The pups had a blast

Beautiful terrain and views. Some parts of the trail could cause a twisted ankle if hiker is not careful.

This is one of the best loops in Riverside Park that DOESN'T follow the river closely. Though the river is arguably the best feature of the park, this trail manages to provide constant engagement and interest without interacting much with the water. The climbs, views and variation in landscape are quite captivating.

Didn't see a single person the hour I spent here. Some pretty neat views from some ridge points and in the dry river bed. Mostly followed the trail but wandered off here and there. Pretty easy hike, shoes were sandy with burrs after this trail, probably mostly from hiking the river bed and off the trail. Is right next to the road which was disappointing. Well maintained and clean though.

Not too bad. Nice view. Trial is very steep and rocky in places. Couldn't find the trail at one point. The last half mile is paved centennial trail.

trail was great until you had to cross Deep Creek... had to make a detour but still a beautiful day today!

K first of all this is not just a bike trail. saw more hikers on it than bikers. this was mu first time on this loop so these insights are "what I'd do different" not definitive guide for riding this. If you are riding this trail the #25 is your main route. There are side trails that seem to loop back into #25. When I do this loop again I won't park at the trail head lot that Google takes you to. There is a pull off down the hill on the highway before you turn off on the dirt road to the parking lot. This pull off is right next to the where the #25 meets the highway. After this ride I know it will be much better to ride the trail the reverse of what I did. That is riding straight west as opposed to south dropping down into the river bed first. still don't know if the right thing was to take the paved traildown from the state park parking lot at the top. may there's someone out there that can post about that. All in all a really fun ride.
