The Fish Lake Trail is a somewhat quick, beautifully maintained multi-use course, ideal for cycling. We suggest it. It is the unofficial north area of the Columbia Plateau Trail. It begins in Spokane simply off western Sunset Blvd, nearby the intersection folks 195 and I-90. Re Re Search Bing maps for “Fish Lake Trailhead” also it will pop right up. Parking is abundant.
The path heads south and southwest in direction of Chaney, approximately after the Spokane-Chaney path. The path crosses I-90 for a trestle, parallels US 195 for a really distance that is short
Nearly ten kilometers of paved path produces a ride that is fantastic. The Fish Lake Trailhead in the north end has ample parking (with overflow parking available in the road), restrooms, and water fountains. Going south after that, the path carefully rises around 1600 ft on the ten kilometers (more or less 3% grade, an average of) which makes it a ride that is easy. The southern 50 % of it includes amazing scenery once the path turns eastern and follows the Cheney-Spokane path through the valley. It presently (June 2015) stops during the end that is southern of Lucas Lake. I am hopeful for the BNSF that is remaining property be obtained therefore the trail to get in touch because of the Columbia Plateau Trail.
Simple ride, gorgeous path
A trail that is great! All 10 kilometers are now actually paved and open with mile markers. It really is a set and simple path with less people compared to Centennial Trail. Continue reading “Beautiful and Effortless Ride That Starts in Spokane. New Asphalt past mile eight”
