Explore the most popular hiking trails near Spokane with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Best riding in Spokane, but generally not for beginners. More suitable for intermediate to advanced riders with full suspension bikes. Also super fun for trail running. The single track and swoopy down hill is super fun to run on because of the banked corners. The elevation is not really good for those who haven't been working out regularly. It is challenging terrain in many places for bikers and runners, so go with someone who knows the area the first few times so you can learn the trails and be prepared. The trail system is pretty good size and there are areas that are private land, so please be respectful and don't ruin this gem for everyone. The majority of the trails are primarily for mountain biking, so it's good to look over your shoulder and pay attention to surroundings. I ride and sometimes run, and there are times when I've been surprised on a trail that is normally a downhill section and find someone hiking up while I'm bombing down. No one is going to intentionally hit you, but there are places where it's hard to stop and I've skidded sideways a few times to avoid folks. This place is truly multi use with Rock climbing, mountain biking, running, disk golf etc. The garbage people talk about is usually where people park near John Shields park and near Minnehaha. Years ago I saw a huge pile of garbage near Esmeralda, but it was picked up. Also, on occasion you'll see stuff left by the homeless, especially in the summer. I guarantee you it's not the ones who regularly use the trails, it's from a handful of druggies and people out drinking etc. Unfortunately, that happens everywhere! There are a lot of people out trying to keep the trails clean, so please do your part too. And of course, enjoy the trails, there's nothing quite like it in all of Spokane.

Nice easy hike! Had a quick picnic at the bench at the top. Good hike for the fur babies.

Fun had by all, excepts for beans

snowy a little muddy and slippery, but beautiful!

Nice trail when not flooding season, relatively easy walking trail, beats a sidewalk in the city.

Great, convenient spot for training to do real mountain hikes and climbs. Too much litter, graffiti, and too many splits to recommend it for anything but training or watching Felts Field. I run it with a 30lb pack for endurance, and climb rocks here and there, but people ruin the nature aspect.

Beautiful day today!
