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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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!

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

It’s was a pretty walk.

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.

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!
