“An 8-mile loop near Liberty Lake, WA featuring waterfalls, a creek bed, and stunning scenery.”— Dave Dutro
Race - Apr 25, 2020
At this point, you'll start another serious climb on a trail that desperately needs repair and more switchbacks. A half mile from the waterfall, you cross the creek one last time and in 0.1 miles reach an old outhouse and shelter which was built by the Boy Scouts. This is the highest point of the route, but there are no views, unfortunately.
The descent is on an old road. It's gradual at first, and then quite steep near the end. The trail then levels out in the valley floor and makes a sharp turn to the right. You are now on the lovely re-route recently built by the WTA to avoid an ever-growing beaver pond. Cross Liberty Creek on a log bridge to rejoin the valley trail about 0.5 miles from the trailhead.
