Very easy down and back that's great for families with even the littlest of kids in strollers. There is also a full loop trail thats right at 3 miles that is definitely for your older kids (7+),during the spring there are still some soggy and muddy places on the woods loop so keep that in mind. The map can be a little confusing because the trail isn't marked. If you are going to do the full loop, I suggest you start with the woods path to the left of the trail sign, that will help clear up the map confusion.

I was hiking with my 2 kids. The first bit was a nice little walk with amazing views. Wish we had stayed on that part. Once we were halfway through, the trail took a turn into the woods. I found it A bit swampy to navigate with small children. By the end of it, the kids were angry and eaten alive by mosquitos.

Would be nice if the trails on the south side of the main path were better labeled. Beautiful views at the trailhead. Main path quite exposed in warm weather. South side paths nice and shaded

Lots of different little trails in this area. Definitely get a map at the trailheads if you’re looking for the waterfall. Like someone mentioned earlier, it’s on trail 107, not the loop trail that the directions take you to from this site. The parking area on Indian Canyon road is the closest to the falls. The trail down to the falls looked too easy to slide down so I was scared to do it alone. :( I went May 2nd and the wildflowers are blooming. Lots of litter and people leaving trace. If you don’t care about nature, please stay home...

This hike is easy and would be perfect for trailrunning and is wheelchair friendly. lots of beautiful cliffs, rocks and wildflowers.

my only complaint is the large amount of garbage- broken beer bottles, trash, cig butts and dog crap. It's so much and honestly kind of killed the vibe.

Beautiful views of Spokane along the loop. Some parts were a little “swampy” from all the rain, but we had fun dodging them.

If you are looking for the big waterfall, you won’t find it on the loop. It’s down in the southern part of the park off Trail 107. There is a big park map in the parking area that will show you how to get there.

Excellent for running, biking and hiking. You have the Indian Canyon Golf Course along the trail if you head south, on this trek you also come across quit a few waterfalls and little ponds of water hidden in the rocks.

Went up yesterday with 5 kids ages 3-11. Great place to let them roam and climb and learn about the after effects of wildfire in certain spots. The favorite activity was boulder climbing and running through the snow field. Need to bring a towel next time to wipe their shoes before getting in car. Great views of the city. Flat trails.

Views are nice, just a little short for a run.

The main gravel road trail has nice views of Spokane, though I didn't find that part of the hike super interesting. I liked the other trails better, especially the ones south of Greenwood Road, toward the waterfall and creek. Some people probably don't realize there is anything south of the road, but the park continues. Look at the park website or one of the maps on site to see the south trails. There are many to explore in that area, and they make it feel more like a normal hike. Some of the trails in the north are super overgrown, which wasn't pleasant. I'll never get the stickers & seed pods out of my socks.

Easy trail - beautiful view of Spokane! No waterfall though - it dried up. Shame on those who litter the trail with cigarette butts and empty water bottles!

The upper rock loop is nice, trail well maintained but it gets rather monotonous after a little while. Not a lot of signage to help you navigate. The waterfall is nice but you better be ready to make your own adventure.

pleasant stroll through the fields and meadows just two or three miles from town.

Very flat trail with phenomenal views of downtown and pretty wildflowers. Some parts were pretty swampy this time of year. Not sure where those waterfall pics were taken from, but the main trail was too flat to see any waterfalls like that. Wish I could've seen them! Woulda made the outing a little more fun. Still a great place to walk the pup. Will probably run up here next time, it's so flat would be a great loop for that.

we had a fun easy ride, except for the water obstacles.

There was a main trail that was in great condition and had excellent views. I had my daughter in a stroller and people could easily ride bikes. We went off the main path which was less stroller friendly because of narrower trails and swampy areas. Will definitely come back!

We took the trail on the south side of Greenwood Rd. We followed the trail all the way down to the waterfall, then back. It was 2.2 miles. It starts off rather steep, then levels off as you cross over the creek several times. Bring bug spray - the mosquitos were bad once we got down by waterfall. Nice, different hike!

Loved it

Great little day hike for a park close to Spokane. Will definitely come back with Major (my dog). Trails are well maintained. I didn't find any parts particularly steep, but I suppose there were a couple downs that may be bothersome to those with weak knees.

Passed by a waterfall. Overlooked the city of Spokane. Relaxing lunch stops sitting atop moss covered rocks. Passed by a couple of cows. Best part was the frost and fog in the early AM, but keep in mind things like this are mostly new and amusing to a Californian.

I'm brand new to the area. Just moved up from CA. Had a great time exploring this park with the Inland Northwest Hiking Group.

Fun trail with great sunsets and sun rises! Does anyone know where the tiny waterfall is?

I found the trail to be very confusing with bad trail markings.

Nice Sunday ride on mountain bikes. Great views. GPS location is a little off from trailhead. But if you drive down the road a little further you will see it.
