A pleasant little jaunt off of Rimrock Drive.

Need to Know

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.

Description

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.

Due to a number of social trails and animal paths, it is difficult to keep to the actual trail. There are old trail signs attached to trees along the path, many of which are no longer readable but will indicate a change in direction.

In springtime, this area is boggy with standing water over parts of the trail. In summer, the grass often all but obliterates the trail, but during winter, the tread is well-worn and easy to find, barring snow cover.
