Very easy down and back that's great for families with even the littlest of kids in strollers. There is also a full loop trail thats right at 3 miles that is definitely for your older kids (7+),during the spring there are still some soggy and muddy places on the woods loop so keep that in mind. The map can be a little confusing because the trail isn't marked. If you are going to do the full loop, I suggest you start with the woods path to the left of the trail sign, that will help clear up the map confusion.

Great main trail, although I found about 5 ticks on my fur baby about 30 min into our hike. (Frontline clearly doesn’t work) and one crawling on me. Also most of the trails on this map are no longer there.

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

I was hiking with my 2 kids. The first bit was a nice little walk with amazing views. Wish we had stayed on that part. Once we were halfway through, the trail took a turn into the woods. I found it A bit swampy to navigate with small children. By the end of it, the kids were angry and eaten alive by mosquitos.

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.

great little trail with minor ups and downs that meander up and over the hills great views of the south hill lower down town the valley and even i believe valley ford. definitely a nice day hike you could take your kids and explore. the trail was well packed and easy to follow in most areas not to much brush to go through, enjoyed the hike.

Easy trail with beautiful wild flowers.

Would be nice if the trails on the south side of the main path were better labeled. Beautiful views at the trailhead. Main path quite exposed in warm weather. South side paths nice and shaded

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.

Lots of different little trails in this area. Definitely get a map at the trailheads if you’re looking for the waterfall. Like someone mentioned earlier, it’s on trail 107, not the loop trail that the directions take you to from this site. The parking area on Indian Canyon road is the closest to the falls. The trail down to the falls looked too easy to slide down so I was scared to do it alone. :( I went May 2nd and the wildflowers are blooming. Lots of litter and people leaving trace. If you don’t care about nature, please stay home...

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

This hike is easy and would be perfect for trailrunning and is wheelchair friendly. lots of beautiful cliffs, rocks and wildflowers.

my only complaint is the large amount of garbage- broken beer bottles, trash, cig butts and dog crap. It's so much and honestly kind of killed the vibe.

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.

Beautiful views of Spokane along the loop. Some parts were a little “swampy” from all the rain, but we had fun dodging them.

If you are looking for the big waterfall, you won’t find it on the loop. It’s down in the southern part of the park off Trail 107. There is a big park map in the parking area that will show you how to get there.

Urban oasis. Expect fellow hikers, beautiful spots overlooking the river!

Scenic trail, all two track instead of single track. I dropped down the east side of the summit to LeLand pond and back for a total of 9.6 miles.

Excellent for running, biking and hiking. You have the Indian Canyon Golf Course along the trail if you head south, on this trek you also come across quit a few waterfalls and little ponds of water hidden in the rocks.

Other than having to see the Waste Treatment Plant, this is a beautiful hike. The single track river portion was dry, but there is still plenty of wet snow on the inland portion. Bring your waterproof boots. ;-)

it's more fun in the snow and off trail! but be careful... lol

Good all around. easy trail. lots of branching off options. easily marked trail heads. :)

Beautiful views of spokane and a great short 3 mile hike!

WAY too crowded!

Very nice trail on a lovely, pretty day!

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.

Went up yesterday with 5 kids ages 3-11. Great place to let them roam and climb and learn about the after effects of wildfire in certain spots. The favorite activity was boulder climbing and running through the snow field. Need to bring a towel next time to wipe their shoes before getting in car. Great views of the city. Flat trails.

Very easy loop. Great for kids, lots of freedom for them to run. Busy yet still private. Love the different landscapes throughout loop.
