Don’t park here!!! My car was broken into and they took everything. They even ripped off my bike rack and took two bikes that were locked on. Be careful!!!

Very beautiful views around the top loop and is a decent place to stop if you have kids for lunch. I didn't see any large animals but did notice deer and bear scat. The left trail entrance has more sun exposure than the right trailhead entrance so if you are going in the heat of the day the right side would be better. It's a steady incline all the way up and steady decline down. It's safe for kids; no drop offs and my 4 year old did it with ease. There's no bathrooms but a portable restroom at trailhead.

Nice hike
Lots of bees near the water on the west side of the trail

Not a bad hike. A little difficult at first because it is a straight incline. After that it is mostly down hill/flat. Another tough climb about halfway through on your way back, you will notice when you go down it.

I've been running this the last couple days with my dogs off leash and there is rarely anyone on it. it's kept clean and I really like it. it's nice to have a little bit of nature in the big city!

Good view of the city at the top, but the hike is mediocre at best. Lots of bikes...

amazing views! took the shortcut 3/4 the way to the top and ended about 3.5 miles round trip. a little dusty on the way back and exposed, but majority of the hike is covered pines and other foliage.

fun hike with great river views. Alot of diffrent paths to take.

Great for a rider

I recommend starting on the right side of the main entrance to the trail, which offers the shadier portion of the loop and the best views on the way down. You’re surrounded by lush forest during the first part of the loop, and it’s very peaceful with only the humming of the bees to break the silence. As a heads up, there are a LOT of bees on this trail and unfortunately I didn’t have any bug spray either so it was a tad bothersome for me. There were quite a few moderate inclines and it was pretty much incline the whole way up. Prepare to huff and puff at a few parts, but you’ll have a great workout.

I finished the shorter loop (left at the next signage) instead of heading up towards the right towards Big Rock. Soon I was in a flattened area of forest, which was a lovely respite from my uphill workout. This part made the whole hike worth it. Amazing views of the city and the open sky. The rest of the way was downhill without any shading. This side would be more difficult to climb up on a sunny day.

Overall, I would do this again for the amazing views and maybe check to out the longer trail. Bring water and bug spray!

Took my wife and teenage son and our dog. Great day for a short hike, and the Thimble Berries were plentiful!

I had the app pulled up almost constantly trying to stay on path. There are so many poorly marked trail the split off. It worked out, I was able to direct and dad and young son to a shorter trail that looped back to the start and another couple to the ponds. I also took a shorter path thanks to all the connecting trails.

Iller Creek has become increasingly popular over the last few years and it's understandable why. In a mere five miles you'll follow a trail that begins in thick, lush forest along the creek, then opens into views and multitudes of wildflowers, then the Rocks of Sharon with views across the Palouse. Old abandoned cars appear out of nowhere (seriously though...how did they get up there?!) and as you head back down the landscape changes again to one like you'd find in a western desert with views of the Spokane Valley. Keep an eye out for wildlife. I've encountered a moose, porcupine and many different birds on the trail. Every season brings something different to the Iller Creek Trail - give it a shot in the winter with your snowshoes!

A must-do if you live in the Spokane area.

My history with Antoine Peak is one of sheer frustration.

1st attempt: Got lost.

2nd attempt: Got lost again.

3rd attempt: Got lost in a blizzard. NEVER AGAIN.

Well, with the recent buzz about the re-vamped trail and shiny new trail markers I decided to give it a go once again. And I am so glad I did.

Antoine Peak's conservation area covers 1,076 acres in the Spokane Valley. It's summit offers 360-degree views of the region - Liberty Lake sparkles to the south with Mount Spokane and the Selkirks towering to the north. There is no shortage of breathtaking sights on this beautiful hike.

Early summer brings an abundance of wildflowers and candy-coated skies at sunset unparallel to other times of the year.

The new and improved trail system offers great signage meaning getting lost should be difficult to do. It also means you can determine how far you want your hike to take you as all markers give distance and direction. My pup and I did the loop from the Brevier Road trailhead. It leads you up to the summit and down around the Emerald Necklace loop along the base of the mountain back to where you started. The sounds of nature were absolutely spectacular...until they stopped altogether and I couldn't help but remember stories of cougar sightings on the hillside.

Don't let that stop you from visiting this beautiful trail right in our backyard though. Just be aware of your surroundings.

July - Summer

Nothing particularly spectacular about this trail. You can get some nice views of Spokane Valley and Liberty Lake, but aside from that, not much else to see.

The trail is very well maintained, and is mostly out in the open. The trail was very hot, and it was very dusty because of this. In most areas it was very wide which allowed two people to walk abreast.

The trail is mostly flat, but there is some elevation gain as you approach the peak. As some other people have noted, the AllTrails loop isn’t entirely accurate anymore, as one of the sections we followed clearly hadn’t been used in a long while.

Parking is free and is quite large.

Remember to bring water! Especially for the dogs, there is no water access on this trail.

As I usually say for this type of trail, not something I’d go out of my way for, but definitely worth checking out if you live near by.

Amazing trail! But If you are looking for peace and quiet this is not the trail for you. Parents do not keep their children in line and some parents allow their children to throw rocks from the top of the trail. If you near the water prepare for a head wound. The water is crystal clear, cold and refreshing. Many dogs on the trail but did not see dog pop. The ppl we did see were super friendly except for the ppl allowing their children to throw rocks. Even when we told them there could be ppl down there, the parents had no respect or regard for others. The trail is not marked so we ended up walking an extra 2 miles. Wear closed toe shoes as there are a lot of rocks on the trail.

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.

Trailhead is closed for reconstruction through July 30th, 2018.

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 with beautiful views in all directions. A portion of the trail goes through the forest along a creek and makes it for a nice cool—down. The rocks are obviously amazing. Bring lots of water as it gets hot this time of the year! Very dog friendly. We will be back!

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.
