This gem of a trail is mostly shaded and cool. It follows Liberty Creek, crosses the creek here and there on footbridges, then crosses and follows the waterfall up the hill to the ridge. After the midpoint, enjoy a fast and continuous downhill dash to the valley. The trail in the area approaching and passing the waterfall is rugged and steep. The rest of the trail is well maintained and well marked. Liberty Lake County Park is 1 mile wide and 5 miles long. It has been an active recreation site since the first settlers arrived in 1871. The historical information on the back of the hiking map is quite interesting. It talks about the area going from roadhouse to a respectable summer resort to a ranch. Finally in 1966, it was purchased by Spokane County with matching funds from federal and state agencies to become the Liberty Lake Natural Area.
