Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Hike through rock gardens, draws, and uplands of Riverside State Park, Washington’s second largest. The park covers 10,000 acres of forests, rocky canyons, and riverfront, as well as several miles of the splashing and frothing Spokane River.

A large section of this hike follows the 25-Mile Trail, which is a 25-mile-long loop through Riverside State Park. Signposts mark much of the 25-Mile Trail."

"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
