Awful, awful, awful for trail running specifically. Not marked and overgrown side trails. I spotted one wild chicken and a few pheasants. Intense uphill and downhills. It does have a good outlook however. The open area below looks pretty, but dogs must be kept on leash, so it isn't much use. This area should be turned into a development.

One side of the trail is basically just a wide dirt road and the second half of the trail is stomping through tall scratchy grass. The view of the city is great but as a whole this “trail” isn’t great.

I lost my keys today on this trail :/ if you find them can you please turn them into the ranger station?

I love this hike. It’s pretty level with slight incline but it’s really beautiful and well trafficked so that means safe. You can feel safe on this trail if you are alone. You pass someone quite often so as this isn’t a private secluded trail, it’s still a nice little distance for a quick run or hike. Lots of small paths and trails cut away and those can be more secluded and add some more trail time to your hike. The main loop is the busier route. Easy parking but a discover pass is required (or you can pay for the day) A few benches along the hike to take a break and picnic tables near the bridge.

Lots of trail markers but this hike in red doesn’t include the whole loop. Technically the necklace expands above what’s mapped out here if you follow trail markers and not this app. If you go off the red trail here your distance increases from 4.6 to closer to 7 miles.

We hiked this trail mid-day on a very hot afternoon in July. This Trail offered very minimal shade. It is obviously not maintained. It has literally zero signage. The trails are very confusing. There is no obvious begin or end to this hike. We were lost many times on spur trails and unmarked trails. The trail was a good workout but I will not be back, Ever! Please, don't waste your time.

I actually parked at the south trailhead for "Stevens Creek" trail off of Stevens Creek Road. Hiked a little under a mile to "Big Rock" and enjoyed the views of the Palouse to the South and Spokane Valley to the North. From where the Stevens Creek Trail meets the Iller Creek Loop at the top I recommend going down on the East (right) loop, as it is more exposed and steep, and then up on the West (left) loop, as it is shaded and less steep. Iller Creek Trailhead shown here is another access point to the "Rocks of Sharon" and Stevens Creek Trail. Good trail for dogs, there is a creek along the west loop.

Great hike, nice bit of a challenge for beginning hikers or a more chill hike for more advanced hikers. The front is pretty exposed so don’t go when it’s too hot but the back is nice and shaded.

What an amazing area!! Loved every second!! If you aren’t a big hiker come here and you will be! The loop trail takes you on some trails that make you think you are backcountry back packing. Making me thing of little magical fairy trails. If you don’t hike very often, and you get here, see some of the hills DO NOT BE AFRAID! The hills are not deadly calf killers, they are gentle slopes that lead to some beautiful and magical moments and views! Loved loved it!!

I went on the right trail and enjoyed the shade. The trail was a gradual incline so was a good workout for me on a beautiful trail.

This trail is so beautiful. There are a lot of different types of wild flower. It was very easy to hike.

This place may be great for disc golf and mountain biking but not the best for hiking. We constantly had to look out for discs flying at us or mountain bikers running us over. If you’re into disc golf this place looks great though

It great for a quick trail that has uphill, downhills and flat. It’s probably really nice in early spring but pretty dry right now. Great for an after work walk

it was a dope hike, flowers are blooomin

The wife and I had a great time hiking this path definitely a great path for beginners. We hiked for about 3 hrs climbed lots of rocks, and the views were amazing. A must see!

The Emerald Necklace loop is a beautiful hike with trail markers making it easy to follow. There are lots of wild flowers and birds. There is even shade on the hike.

One of my favorite places to hike and to go swimming!

A great trail near town with nice views of both the Spokane Valley from the Iller Creek side, and of the Palouse from near Rocks of Sharon on the Stevens Creek side.
If coming from Iller Creek Trailhead, the trail to the right (western side) of the trail will provide you shade and a more gradual elevation gain, while the trail that heads off to the left (the more eastern side) is steeper and more exposed. Keep that in mind as you assess the season, the temperatures, and time of day.

This trail is also used by mountain bikers. It is heavily trafficked.

This is a great trail running loop.

One the best trails we’ve been on. Great inclines, gets the heart pumping. Loved it

Amazing loop with great bouldering and technical climbing options!

my wife and I hiked a portion of this trail today, when I get more time I plan to come back!!

This is a nice little hike close to the city. There's a very gradual incline in the beginning and it's all flat or downhill from there - quite easy and would be a good family hike. The South facing side of the hill is open and hot with little shade. The trail is very wide like a road. A lot of the grass was already dead with a few wildflowers hanging on. We were disappointed at the top - there are several loudly humming cell towers and an obstructed view of Spokane Valley. However, once you start descending down the north side of the hill, there is a beautiful view of rolling hills and trees and everything is suddenly lush and green. The trail narrows and winds along and down the hill. We found plenty of mating beetles, dragonflies, bees, and wildflowers. This made up for the first part of the hike. I would go back to explore some more. We came after work around 5:30 and leisurely hiked this in two hours - 5.4 miles. There's a sign at the trailhead saying that they are moving the trails around so it probably won't match the route here on AllTrails.

Fun hike! Bring the bug spray and be ready for some moderate uphill.

The area was nice with some good rock formations to play on but the trails were confusing and easy to get lost on which we did. We ran into the end of the park boundaries two or three times to find back yards and houses. It had a couple of small ponds and if you stayed in the park it was a nice area but still confusing. Give yourself at least three hours on the trails.

Beautiful place for a family hike!

I love going on a daily hike on this trail. It's veiw gives you a good way to get out of the house and moving.

first hike of the year! some great views. great workout!

Crowded on the weekends, but great id-week and early in the am..

Fun easy trail. Fun to do mid-week with the pups.
