A fun, not too hard, not too easy trail along the Palouse River and the hills along it.

Description

The first mile of the trail is flat and paved along the Palouse River. At the end of the pavement, the fun begins with a singletrack climb to a gate then more climbing before descending again to the river. Runners will then enjoy more flat running along the Palouse River until mile 2.6 when the trail turns into the woods and climbs to the ridge in about 1/2 mile.

The singletrack meanders through the woods, hills, and meadows for a couple miles before heading back down to meet the paved trail at the 5.4-mile mark.

Overall, it is a fun run with easy, flat sections, some manageable climbing, a few roots and a fun descent.

Many thanks to the locals who help maintain the trail.
