This is not a suitable road bike trail whatsoever. I made the drive thinking this was something other than what I’ve hiked previously. After riding around the entire Bowl and Pitcher camp grounds and surrounding trails there is zero indication that I can take my road bike anywhere near this place other than the roads and parking lots for the cars that park and drive through. If this is solely intended for mountain biker then it needs to be indicated as such and not misleading with the “road bike” tag. The only place to actually ride would be on the Gun range road which doesn’t have any bike lanes and has plenty of drop off the make any rider with a car passing on the left have a near death experience. Also anything pertaining cycling is definitely not kid friendly. A big, “helllll nahhh” from this road cyclist.

Really cool bridge and a cool place that I always take people who are visiting from out of town. It is sure to wow your guests or just be a great reliable walk/hike.

Most of it was road with no shade, and the begining area has a lot of loose rocks so not very stable to walk on especially if you have a baby in a hiking carrier.

Great hike, I was visiting Spokane so I took an Uber from my hotel downtown to Bowl and Pitcher. I started by taking Trail 25 to the right of the bridge. Ended up taking a longer loop than what is shown above (did 8.5 miles). Followed more of Trail 25 than the Centennial Trail to be more wooded versus a sun-drenched paved road. The views on the river side are beautiful, the backside of the trail definitely has more elevation changes. Bring sunscreen and bug spray for sure. I went on a Tuesday afternoon and only passed a handful of people.

The trail itself was great! However make sure to bring mosquito repellent! I had to turn around because I was getting swarmed!

As mentioned by a previous reviewer, recommend sticking to trail 25 for great views of the river, rather than doing a loop with the centennial trail. You can go miles down trail 25, though I turned around after 3 miles. The trail starts at the bowl and pitcher, a pretty area with massive rounded rocks and a bridge crossing the river. The terrain changes from forest to cliff views to grassy riverside. The trail is very well maintained and you wouldn’t have any problems running or hiking in normal running shoes.

Thick mud in places, a little snow here or there, but overall, my dog and I had a blast. We went right after the bridge to enjoy the river, and after the first mile, had the trail to ourselves. Only complaint is, what’s up with all the dog poop? Nobody picks up anymore??

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
