I had the app pulled up almost constantly trying to stay on path. There are so many poorly marked trail the split off. It worked out, I was able to direct and dad and young son to a shorter trail that looped back to the start and another couple to the ponds. I also took a shorter path thanks to all the connecting trails.

Awful, awful, awful for trail running specifically. Not marked and overgrown side trails. I spotted one wild chicken and a few pheasants. Intense uphill and downhills. It does have a good outlook however. The open area below looks pretty, but dogs must be kept on leash, so it isn't much use. This area should be turned into a development.

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.

Trailhead is closed for reconstruction through July 30th, 2018.

We hiked this trail mid-day on a very hot afternoon in July. This Trail offered very minimal shade. It is obviously not maintained. It has literally zero signage. The trails are very confusing. There is no obvious begin or end to this hike. We were lost many times on spur trails and unmarked trails. The trail was a good workout but I will not be back, Ever! Please, don't waste your time.

What an amazing area!! Loved every second!! If you aren’t a big hiker come here and you will be! The loop trail takes you on some trails that make you think you are backcountry back packing. Making me thing of little magical fairy trails. If you don’t hike very often, and you get here, see some of the hills DO NOT BE AFRAID! The hills are not deadly calf killers, they are gentle slopes that lead to some beautiful and magical moments and views! Loved loved it!!

It great for a quick trail that has uphill, downhills and flat. It’s probably really nice in early spring but pretty dry right now. Great for an after work walk

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!

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

Lots of different little trails in this area. Definitely get a map at the trailheads if you’re looking for the waterfall. Like someone mentioned earlier, it’s on trail 107, not the loop trail that the directions take you to from this site. The parking area on Indian Canyon road is the closest to the falls. The trail down to the falls looked too easy to slide down so I was scared to do it alone. :( I went May 2nd and the wildflowers are blooming. Lots of litter and people leaving trace. If you don’t care about nature, please stay home...

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!

This hike is easy and would be perfect for trailrunning and is wheelchair friendly. lots of beautiful cliffs, rocks and wildflowers.

my only complaint is the large amount of garbage- broken beer bottles, trash, cig butts and dog crap. It's so much and honestly kind of killed the vibe.
