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!!!

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.

Great hike! We went counterclockwise... the trail starts off shaded and has a bit of an incline for around a mile. Once you make it around the loop and start the descent back, there aren’t many trees so you get a great view of Spokane and Dishman hills. So green and beautiful this time of year!

Beautiful trail, with dense foliage down below and tree lined meadows at higher elevation.

Would definitely rate this trail as moderate if you go to the top. Nice shady areas kept me cool even in the heat of the day. It is easy to stay on the trail if you just stay on the wider trail. lol. Lots of mosquitoes. I wish I had taken bug spray.

I enjoyed this hike a lot! Little muddy on one side but definitely a hike I will do again!

I hiked up to the first crest going counter-clockwise, then turned around. This trail is beautiful and pretty well kept. Very steep in places. It was very muddy (but that was my own fault for going while it was raining). A few tiny streams to jump over. Mosquitoes are a little out of control, ended up with two arms full of bites, so make sure you pack bug spray.

Beautiful hike. Nice stream along the route for my dog to cool off. Little to many people along the way for my liking. But it was the first sunny and enjoyable weekend so far, and Mothers Day weekend. I will definitely go back, but try a week day.

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.

We stayed right and it was really muddy at first but once we reached the top it was sunny and beautiful the rest of the way. Would do again.

Excellent hike. One of my favorites. 6.5 mile loop.

Wow, inclines! Great hike although we got a confused by the trail at times, a few offshoots.

Beautiful views, running water, well maintained trails. We went off the main loop and got quite the hike in! Ended up going almost 8 miles with a lot of uphill. You can make this hike difficult if you want!

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.

Both my dog and I loved it! Nothing too steep and great views at the top. There was one point when we had to find the trail (took about 5 min) but other than that no issues.

Beautiful views, a few muddy spots but nothing that could not be avoided. Enjoyed lunch at the rocks.

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.

One of my favorite places to take people when they visit me in Spokane. It's hard to believe that such a spectacle sits in the middle of the city, right next to downtown. The walk doesn't give a remote, outdoor feeling, but the views of the falls are awesome!

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

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.

Some shallow water crossings, one felled tree. Clearly marked main paths, lots of smaller loops available throughout. Beginnings of wildflowers.

A nice trail that’s marked clearly the entire loop. It was pretty muddy most of the way uphill, going clockwise. But the downhill part was dry and nice. The view at the top is beautiful!

This trail is more for bikers and not hikers. A lot of mountain bike traffic to dodge. Scenery is of the city. This is not a trail I would recommend.

Trail is great for running and biking and has quickly become a staple for warm weather exercise due to the convenient location. For the section that it parallels 195 or the train tracks it can be a little loud if there's traffic or trains passing by. There are also some homeless folk that inhabit spots just off the trail closer to the city, so if you have a low tolerance for that sort of thing then maybe you avoid it or bring a friend or dog.
