“This trail offers beautiful views of Spokane Valley and Mt. Spokane with a mild climb.”

Foot traffic only on these trails and dogs must be leashed.
Old railroad ties built into the trail make it challenging in spots. On some of the lesser used sections, there are moss-covered rocks that can be slippery.
The Nimbus Knob Trail, recently rerouted by Washington Trails Association volunteers, takes visitors to a lovely view of Spokane and the entire Spokane Valley.
There is a bit of climbing, but it's a mild grade and quite pleasant. This trail also moves south through the Lost Pond area. This pond is dry much of the year, with the exception of spring/early summer but still a great place for wildlife viewing.
The trail also connects with many of the other loop trails in the Natural Area.
