Unbelievable!!!

Not really a rural hike, but a nice little oasis within the city. Paths are mostly paved or gravel, with some dirt trails branching off throughout. Paths are well defined but don’t exactly follow the AllTrails maps - but that’s no bother really since they’re all interconnected. You can branch off from the main trails down to the rivers edge, trek over to Discovery Park playground, or just meander through the wooded trails with ease - also the man-made waterfall area is a great stopping point where you can observe turtles, ducks and even a marmot or two. I took a non-jogging stroller and it was perfectly fine even on gravel, although we had to avoid some of the smaller dirt paths with it. A great family-friendly walking/jogging trail that we will definitely do again!

needs better trail markers

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

my wife and I hiked a portion of this trail today, when I get more time I plan to come back!!

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.

The area was nice with some good rock formations to play on but the trails were confusing and easy to get lost on which we did. We ran into the end of the park boundaries two or three times to find back yards and houses. It had a couple of small ponds and if you stayed in the park it was a nice area but still confusing. Give yourself at least three hours on the trails.

Beautiful place for a family hike!

my best friend and I took our kids here 2 days ago. we had a great time on the hike and we found the waterfall. unfortunately a dog jumped from the above cliff and almost landed on my daughter and the owners were somewhere but a stranger came down and got the dog and took it up to the owners. it was an upsetting trip and we will never go back. BE CAREFUL!

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.

Fun easy trail. Fun to do mid-week with the pups.

This trail seems endless! There are several off shoots that once familiar with the area, you can make up a walk as long as you like. I do anywhere between 4-8 miles when I go.

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.

Amazing trail. My dog and I ran it in February, and you have to ford 3-4 creeks. The last one ("Deep Creek") is a bit adventurous, but that's probably because the waters were higher than normal. Was totally feasible though, beautiful, and so much fun!!!

So beautiful and tons of different trails to take. we walked along trails down river and it was amazing!

My final visit to Holmberg. The purpose of this visit was to test a particular loop route I thought would be a nice one to submit to AllTrails. I did a little extra wandering as well.

On this third visit to Holmberg I finished walking down every trail. It became clear to me which paths and viewpoints were my favorites in order to come up with a pleasant loop route.

On this second visit I filled in the blanks, hiking the lower elevation trails I missed the first time. The diagonal, perfectly straight line path from northeast to southwest of the park is a great finishing route to a loop in the higher elevations.

Holmberg Conservation Area will exceed your expectations because its true merits are hidden behind a run-of-the-mill city park. There is quite a variety of terrain, and the trails shoot off at interesting angles. At first glance it seems to be a walk through the prairie. Take time to explore and you will discover Holmberg is much more! There are treed areas, flat sections and serious calf burning steep climbs! There are excellent views from just above the treeline. Discovery of the somewhat hidden climb to the top yields multiple city views from rocky bluffs that jet out between the trees. Naively thinking I could see everything Holmberg offers in a quick evening visit, I was pleased to discover it would take a few visits to fully explore every trail in this gem.

Well defined, easy trail with some great views along the river! Perfect for walking the pup who isn’t quite used to hiking. Only issue for us was crossing the bridge first. Myself (and turns out my dog too) are afraid of bridges with rushing water underneath, ha!

Loved the water and how it rushes against the rocks. Something peaceful about this place.

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, easy to reach, great for dog walking. Easy enough for my 9yo to trek around with me.

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

Definitely don’t forget your bug spray, even once you head up onto Knothead Valley trail, bugs everywhere. But this is such a beautiful trail. Love these views and the birds.

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.
