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

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.

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?

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.

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.

it was a dope hike, flowers are blooomin

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.

Great trail run. Perfect amount of hills and views and grass and trees.

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.

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.

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

The terrain was interesting enough along Trail 101 loop. The trails are not well marked, but it would be hard to get lost. There were A TON OF TICKS on my dog and I.

Nice and easy hike for our pups! Beautiful view at the top, I definitely want to go back and hike the other side.

Good starter hike. Clear wide trail if you stick to the main path. Gradual up hill to the summit, but the view is beautiful. There was a rattlesnake crossing the trail, but he kept going into the brush. Beware if you or you animals are going off the path.

I love this Trail. It is a lot of up and down and it goes into wide-open territory so there's little shade from the Sun after the first part. But as beautiful views of the South Hill and the rest of Spokane. Very little traffic on this Trail. I was able to find my way easily as I stayed on the app all trails and my little blue. Show me exactly where I was. Definitely will be one I will do more often.

Good long trail, no incline, but it's unshaded. Bring plenty of sunscreen and water.

Loved the bridge, water was high and fabulous. Easy enough for kids, great scenery, but busy! There was no pavement in this trail, that is on the bowl and pitcher trail.

This is a nice little walk or area for trail running or biking. There are some beautiful views of downtown Spokane to start. The road is gravel/concrete and then the trail turns left into the woods which spits you back out near the beginning. There were still some really muddy spots you need to navigate. Also, wear bug spray!! Especially if you go in the late afternoon. It's mosquito heaven. Otherwise, a nice and easy stroll a close drive from town.

great trails but LOTS of ticks!!!

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
