    "The first half of the Bowl and Pitcher Loop closely follows the bank of the beautiful Spokane River. You then return on a broad trail through mixed conifer forest to the Swinging Bridge Trailhead. There is plenty of parking, restrooms, and a campground close to the trailhead. Read the reader board at the east end of the Swinging Bridge, then cross the bridge and begin your hike. As you cross the bridge, the Bowl and Pitcher rock formation is to your right." Read more
