Instead of going the traditional route that this suggests, I took a right immediately after the bridge and stayed on trail 25 almost the whole way. I also took trail 211 for a small portion. There is a lot of different ways to map out trails. I would use the map on here to decide which trails you want to go to. It is a fairly easy hike. It is currently January though so there is snow about 3/4ths of trail 25 and some slippery ice. I don’t recommend taking the centennial trail like this recommends because it is paved (unless you are looking for a paved trail. Route 25 stays along the river while the centennial trail does not so it is also more beautiful.

Loved the bridge, water was high and fabulous. Easy enough for kids, great scenery, but busy! There was no pavement in this trail, that is on the bowl and pitcher trail.

04/22/2018-The trail is in excellent shape. Right after you step off the pedestrian bridge onto the trail, take the first trail to your right. This will take you on the trail nearest the river bank which is the prettiest part of the hike. Instead of doing the loop, I’d hike along the river 2.5 miles to Gate 35, turn around and hike back the same way. If you do the loop, half the hike is on the Centennial Trail (boring). If you do this hike as an up and back, you get to see the prettiest parts twice. Watch for Ospreys in the trees along the river as you hike.

Nice hike, fairly easy, the trail is a combo between walking along the river and a paved road. You have to walk on the road and then it turns into centennial trail which is paved. At least half of the trail is in paved road.

Parking is plentiful.

Very easy loop. Great for kids, lots of freedom for them to run. Busy yet still private. Love the different landscapes throughout loop.

Great little trail.

Nice hike with the kids and dogs. Trails are not marked very well and there are several spots that you could get on the wrong trail.

Great hike, with fabulous views. Easy to get to and thus pretty popular.

Nice trail system in a beautiful state park. I tried to find the southern route along the river, as suggested, but never found it. still a good morning hike. By noon it was too hot and some parts of the trail have no shade, so go early if you go in the summertime

The exploration of the Centennial Trail above, looping down to the southern section of Riverside Park made an awesome day. No way to be unhappy on this trail. The river is beautiful down there. I think I like the southern area better than Bowl & Pitcher, which seems to get more attention - perhaps because of the huge rock formations and cool bridge. Note, to experience what I mean by awesome, you have to go considerably farther south than the recommended route. Look at my recording for reference. It's a longer hike, but well worth it. Bring stuff to swim in or at least for getting your feet wet.

Great trail for taking the whole family on. It is very shaded which made it great for a hot summer day. Absolutely beautiful area. The only down side was the trail was not always clearly marked and without my phone I would not have known which way to go.

Pros: best park in the county. Spectacular views when the river is high and the sun is out. Well marked.

Cons: crowded with families, kids and non-athletes. Parking was expensive compared to area trails. Cliffs were dangerous.

A great trail for newbies...very hard to get lost. Our kiddos loved it too! (Ages 3 and 1) Also a great trail to take our dog on!

Great for kiddos

Views were beautiful. It was more fun if you shoot off to the side trails that are scattered off the main trail. Defiantly an easy hike; not too exciting if you're looking for something challenging.

First hike in Spokane and using this app. Went in January with a lot of snow, but Trail was still accessible. Beautiful views. Easy enough for our kids. Suspension bridge is cool!

Riverside State Park is one of my Favorite places to go for a day hike/walk. They are pet friendly, the views are great and the terrain is easy to navigate if you are just starting or have little ones. Camping is great there as well! Don't forget to get your Discover Pass and go check this Park out!
