Still snow and ice in spots on 03/10/18. I liked that it was nicely paved and taken care of, but don’t think I’ll be back. Kinda one of those things where you do it once and then don’t feel the need to come back.

3/11/18 Muddy starting up the left side and icy coming down the right.

Great hike! Went counter clockwise and glad we did since it was quite muddy on the way down (probable last mile or so). Great viewing points once you get to the top. Dogs are allowed and it was noticed a lot of owners do not pick up after them so just watch your step. Overall great hike and would like to come back in the summer.

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. ;-)

Fun to do the whole loop. Has some steep parts. We always bring lunch to eat on the rocks at the top and enjoy the view of the Palouse.

The main trail was packed enough to not need snowshoes. We walked through some of the smaller trails as well, but snowshoes would have been nice to have on those. Just enough new snow to not be icy, but it will be soon. We only saw one other person this morning and had a great view from the top on a sunny day.

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!

Icy and muddy, but totally worth it

great spot, easy to find. if you go right now (jan.) you might want to bring microspikes. the trail is iced over completely.
will be back when we get fresh snow to go snowshoeing

WAY too crowded!

A very peaceful walk during the lovely fall.

Very nice trail on a lovely, pretty day!

Fun had by all, excepts for beans

snowy a little muddy and slippery, but beautiful!

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!

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.

Really beautiful hike with great views of Spokane. Definitely follow the trail map if it’s your first time because there are a few places where it’s not clear.

Did this Oct 24 from the east side. Only ran into one other hiker. Trail well signed at the junctions. RT was 5 miles mostly easy with a few steep sections at the start and near the top. Various viewpoints along the trail were just as good as summit which has radio towers present. Overall nice hike fairly close to town.

Views are nice, just a little short for a run.

There are many trails with much less of a climb than the Minnehaha Loop, if you are a Spokane mountainbiker then I recommend this place...there is a little skills park and trails from XC to tech...very fun lots of jumps too.

Visiting from CA, was a nice place to take a morning run.

Nice afternoon hike

There was a lot of climbing involved, I would do it again but after going up once I was too tired, so I went home...do not recommend if it is your first time on a mountain bike trail.

Great little trail.

Beautiful scenery.... Nice trail for an out of shape guy.
