Runner Notes

Description

This section of the Columbia Plateau Trail starts just off Cheney Spokane Road at the Fish Lake Trailhead. For 4.2 miles you'll be treated to beautiful scenery as you pass by Fish Lake, open farmland and babbling streams along side the trail. The trail is adjacent to working railway tracks. You can see evidence of tracks from years gone by, old rails, wooden support posts and underpasses. During the summer you'll hear frogs and see turtles, the occasional deer, and maybe even a moose.
When you reach Cheney-Spangle Road the trail becomes a gravel/dirt surface. The trail continues for several more miles: all the way to Kennewick, WA.

When you reach the Cheney-Spangle road there is another trailhead (Cheney Trailhead). You are just under a mile from downtown Cheney where you'll find several great little restaurants for a mid-trip snack.

Flora & Fauna

Wildflowers, babbling stream, early season small waterfalls, pastures.
