Fun trip. Easy walking. Challenging for my 9yo but the view made it worth it. Great view of Spokane Valley from the peak.

We stayed right and it was really muddy at first but once we reached the top it was sunny and beautiful the rest of the way. Would do again.

Excellent hike. One of my favorites. 6.5 mile loop.

Definitely don’t forget your bug spray, even once you head up onto Knothead Valley trail, bugs everywhere. But this is such a beautiful trail. Love these views and the birds.

Wow, inclines! Great hike although we got a confused by the trail at times, a few offshoots.

Beautiful views, running water, well maintained trails. We went off the main loop and got quite the hike in! Ended up going almost 8 miles with a lot of uphill. You can make this hike difficult if you want!

Trail is in great shape, very clean and stable. Awesome hike to take the dogs on, our old lab kept up the entire time. Great hike for all ages and skill levels.

Both my dog and I loved it! Nothing too steep and great views at the top. There was one point when we had to find the trail (took about 5 min) but other than that no issues.

Beautiful views, a few muddy spots but nothing that could not be avoided. Enjoyed lunch at the rocks.

One of the best hikes I’ve been on in a while. There’s frequent changes in elevation to give nice variety. Saw birds, bugs, critters and turkeys along the way. There were tons of viewpoints to stop and take pictures. Trail was well marked and not heavily trafficked. We were the only hikers at 9am. Definitely will do this one again.

One of my favorite places to take people when they visit me in Spokane. It's hard to believe that such a spectacle sits in the middle of the city, right next to downtown. The walk doesn't give a remote, outdoor feeling, but the views of the falls are awesome!

It was beautiful. My friend and I enjoyed it, we definitely will be going back.

It’s was a pretty walk.

Some shallow water crossings, one felled tree. Clearly marked main paths, lots of smaller loops available throughout. Beginnings of wildflowers.

A nice trail that’s marked clearly the entire loop. It was pretty muddy most of the way uphill, going clockwise. But the downhill part was dry and nice. The view at the top is beautiful!

Remember, no dogs!

Easy trail with great views of the river. Good birdwatching, too.

This trail is more for bikers and not hikers. A lot of mountain bike traffic to dodge. Scenery is of the city. This is not a trail I would recommend.

Trail is great for running and biking and has quickly become a staple for warm weather exercise due to the convenient location. For the section that it parallels 195 or the train tracks it can be a little loud if there's traffic or trains passing by. There are also some homeless folk that inhabit spots just off the trail closer to the city, so if you have a low tolerance for that sort of thing then maybe you avoid it or bring a friend or dog.

Great views along the river and from the suspension bridge...

Went early on Saturday to do the loop counterclockwise. East side is dry until you get up to the cut off trail and then there's some sections of snow. Lots more snow on trail coming back the west side plus you'll have to jump the creek a couple of times.

Nice trail, well marked. Tons of bugs! Make sure to pack bug spray.

Took my fat bike and dog up to the towers. Wasn’t easy but it was fun. Still a little snow in places and a little mud but no issues.
