Description

This connector trail is straight forward and easy to find off of the east side of Trail 101 - North Trail Red Loop (going east) and Rimrock Drive (going west). However, it can be difficult to find going east from Rimrock Drive so watch the crest of the rim closely to the west if you're hoping to use this connector. The segment of the connector between the west side of Trail 101 - North Trail Red Loop and Rimrock Drive is a flat, narrow, but relatively rock and root free, singletrack.

The section of trail between Rimrock Drive and the east side of Trail 101 - North Trail Red Loop is steep, narrow and has quite a bit of loose basalt on the tread so watch your step. Since this section of the trail leads down from the rim, you move from views of the city and Mt. Spokane into a beautiful wooded area with tall trees and very little underbrush. As with most of this area, there are social trails and animal tracks that crisscross this connector so just keep an eye on the map when you're headed for Trail 101 - North Trail Red Loop or Rimrock Drive.
