“Easy trails near downtown Spokane with great outdoor life!”— Carol Christensen
The trail itself is a wide singletrack that is quite friendly to navigate. Consistent maintenance has tamed any obstacles that would be present. Due to the forested nature of the trail, there is ample shade, which makes the trail a great option during warmer summer months.
This trail also provides a jumping-off point for many other beautiful trails in the Natural Area, such as the Nimbus Knob Trail and the Pinecliff Loop Trail. The trail is especially beautiful during the spring, summer and fall and the park is an excellent snowshoe area in the winter.
