This trail is littered with basalt rock. It is muddy and sometimes flooded in the spring and overgrown with native grasses in the summer but a fun ride nonetheless. It's also very easy to get off the main trail onto social trails or moose trails. Beware of wildlife.
Off Rimrock Drive
, this trail passes an old military building and meanders through the wooded area of Palisades Park. The area is flush with high desert flora, fauna, basalt, and views of Spokane.
