“This loop provides pleasant views of Spokane, a nice wooded area and the chance to see trains!”— Carol Christensen
Family Friendly Easy to follow trail system and very little elevation gain or loss, as well as a relatively short distance make this a nice trail for families.
You'll move through a wooded area and then parallel the railroad tracks. After heading down a hill, you'll find yourself at Trail 12 and some lovely graffiti. At this point, the trail turns west and begins to climb back to the top of the bluff. There is a great view of the rock wall built by the CCC along this section. At the top of the bluff, you'll cross Rimrock Drive. If you're short on time, you can head (roughly) south on Rimrock Drive and return to the parking area. To continue on Trail 101, cross over Rimrock and continue west.
Moose are fond of this area so be on the lookout, particularly during the fall rutting season. As the trail begins to angle back to the south, you can connect with Trail 122 Connector for a longer loop, or keep going south to reconnect with the parking lot. This area gets boggy in the spring so take bug spray. The last section of trail is very narrow singletrack and will come out at the parking area.
