Deep Creek Loop, Spokane 

Directions:   Head north of Spokane, following the river, until you reach Seven Mile Bridge. On the west side, go north about a half mile on Riverside State Park Drive. Follow the Centennial Trail until you reach the creek.

Trail Information:   I like to follow the mountain bike paths that encompass the basalt cliffs overlooking the creek. It's a beautiful area , very easy running, and moderate hazards if you decide to cross the creek in the spring. A local mountain biking guidebook lists a wonderful 5 mile loop. I highly recommend it.

Miscellaneous Information: In case you have rockshoes and a harness, there's great climbing in the area
