Liberty Lake Loop Trail (Spokane)

Date: July 16, 2016

Location: Liberty Lake, Spokane, WA

Distance: 8.5 miles

Elevation Gain: 1500 feet

Beginning of the trail

I hiked this trail about 10 years ago and found amount of effort demanded by this trail just did not match rewards it offered. My most recent trip did not alter my opinion about this popular trail.

Beaver Dam along the first miles

Trail is generally well marked, and when in doubt, stay on to the left until one reach the nice Cedar Grove at 2.5 mile.

This will follow by a steep climb up Sam Hill, and only one elevated view of Liberty Lake (top page). At 3.5 mile, the water fall is reached.

The trail continues uphill for another 0.5 mile to the Boy Scout shelter, then going downhill via largely nondescript horse trail back to complete the loop.
