Mystic Falls in Indian Canyon Falls trail - This was one of the best waterfall family hikes we have done in Spokane. What a great adventure to just get lost and find an obstacle course leading to this secret waterfall and cave! Is was great scavenger hunt really. There were red arrow markings leading down to the hideaway trail and you cross through water, logs and hop on rocks...it’s awesome! There are two ways to get there. We headed straight, but then took a quick right. Then we walked downhill a bit and got to an open hideaway. The cave was a real treat for the kids.

Great spot to ride horses off Government Way on Equestrian Ln. the views of the Spokane River are amazing on a horse!

This is a great family hike. I’ve done this a few times now all during different seasons. During winter, this is tolerable, but slippery. The snow is not too deep. During Fall, the trails can get really muddy and slippery. During Summer, there are bugs out so bring your bug spray! You must climb any of the rocks to truly enjoy the views. Easy to climb! Great leg and booty workout. It’s all uphill so stretch before you climb.

Beautiful trail with great views. Great for kids. It’s longer than the trail description says. Consider going up to the top at Stevens Creek trailhead to the Big Rock for a fun picnic.

a few puddles but a blast like always

good trail. moderate traffic today. very groomed

This has got to be my favorite trail. Iller Creek is great, but the parking there is not. I highly recommend Rocks of Sharon for the fabulous views of the Palouse. Everything in Dishman Hills is well marked and maintained.

Quintessential Spokane hike offers so much beauty that is unique to the area. The views from the top to the south over the Palouse region are like none other with a patchwork of green grass, golden wheat and bright yellow canola fields. The hike up from the Stevens Creek parking lot starts out as an unremarkable fire road, but after less than a mile changes to a much more interesting hiking trail snaking it’s way up the steep (but generally manageable for reasonably fit adults) incline to the top. I think the rating of “moderate” is fair here. As we neared the dramatic rock formations, the trail became quite steep, and it was a bit confusing choosing a route from the many that branch off in different directions, but hard to get lost, especially if you are tracking with the map on the app. We cut the route a bit shorter bypassing the longer loop to the north and ended up tracking a distance of about 4.5 miles. Definitely would do this hike again if we find ourselves in Spokane in the future!

This was an absolutely phenomenal hike. Lower temps and cloudy skies made for a perfect morning workout! I took the suggested route, starting on the east side and heading north to the lookout, then SW to the bottom and east at the Indian Painted Rocks. Stopped a few times to catch my breath and simply enjoy the scenery; AllTrails says I did this in about 2:40:00 I think. This was such a green hike! Started at 7:15am and it had either just rained or the passing most left picturesque droplets on all the plants. Trails were well maintained, stopped and chatted with a few strangers, and the lookout up at the top offers excellent views of this bend in the Spokane River. You can even see Spokane Airport from there!

This downtown loop is perfect for a run or walk along the river for locals or those visiting Spokane. Great view of the river, falls and a quick glimpse of Gonzaga University’s campus.

Love my neighborhood trails!! The trails are great for walks/hikes, trail running and training for longer day hikes. The best part of this trail system is that you can make them as intense or as long you want.

One of my favorite trails. You can pick all sorts of different trails to go up or down the mountain on the other side of the bridge. I did run into a few snakes in late June on the trail between the rocks and the river. Watch for the beautiful bald eagle and nest.

It was AMAZING! So much fun. The trail down to the waterfall takes longer than expected but is totally worth it! Make sure you have good traction on your shoes if you plan to hike up the side of the canyon at the waterfall.

Was a fun hike. Yes its still muddy, and you do have to cross some creeks. Kind of hate how you have to look at your phone the whole time to make sure your on the right trail. All in all a good hike

Went off course and got stopped by some unhappy property owners. So of the million private property signs I guess obey. REMEMBER we live on stolen land!

Great trail and trail area. Just have to keep your map on you as trails go everywhere. We veered off a few times some purposely and some not. Great time together as a family.

Beautiful wildflowers!

The start of the trail from the parking lot had me a little disappointed as it seemed to be going down a an old road with lack luster ponderosas and minimal undergrowth, but as we meandered north the trail was more like a true trail and the vegetation thicker in spots. Dropping down into the valley near the river has the best views and more lush vegetation, including wildflowers. The trails look as if frequently used for mountain bikers, but we were fortunate to not run into any today, only some trail runners and hikers. I would imagine these trail get very hot and dry as the summer progresses due to the western exposure. Be sure to pack plenty of water.
