Spokane River Loop

Spokane River Loop Professional Review and Guide

"People of all ages, sometimes even during winter, come to enjoy this hike along the shores of the Spokane River beginning near the unique basalt formations known as the Bowl and Pitcher just northwest of Spokane.

The trail leads away from the noise of the campground and picnic area, over a bridge above the rushing white water, to quiet retreats in Riverside State Park, which was established in 1933. Buttercups, grass widows, and balsamroot are among the many plants hikers enjoy during spring. Be extremely careful around the Bowl and Pitcher and Devils Toenail Rapids, where the water is particularly swift and dangerous."
