“A fun, not too hard, not too easy trail along the Palouse River and the hills along it.”— Jim Hammond
Family Friendly The flat paved first mile is ADA and very family friendly including benches and a little beach with a picnic table.
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 hike with easy, flat sections, some manageable climbing, a few roots and a fun descent.
Many thanks to the locals who help maintain the trail.
