“This trail runs along the north side of North Asotin Creek with sighting of big horn sheep possible.”— Larry Haws
The trail has a few rocky spots, but none are considered difficult. If running Asotin Creek in July and August rattlesnakes have been reported. Additionally, the one spring may not be flowing and there are no water sources. Bring plenty of water.
From the parking area (Where a Discovery Pass will be required) the trail starts behind the steel gate and immediately crosses Lick Creek. The first half mile is a doubletrack along the side of a field and then you enter a fine dual and singletrack that takes you along Asotin Creek for ten miles. Take the time to enjoy the creek views and look closely for the mountain sheep on the cliffs above. The trail climbs higher above the creek and narrows in spots.
At about mile nine you'll find a pretty spring emerging from the wall right on the trail. This is will be running in the spring but may not have water in July and August. The Asotin Creek Trail ends at ten miles and starts up hill on to South Pinkham Trail. The trail is an easy 1250 ft. elevation gain in the ten miles.
