  • Access via BLM land 30 miles west of Spokane.
  • 4 miles round trip.

Directions: From Interstate 90, take Fishtrap Exit 254 and turn south. Cross over I-90 and go 0.8 mile. Turn left on Lake Valley Loop Road and drive 0.5 mile to the parking area at Jack Brown Road.

Notes: A washout of the access road to the Hog Canyon boat launch has provided a temporary new hiking option into an area free of motor vehicle traffic. From the locked vehicle gate on Jack Brown Road, start hiking on the road through the pedestrian gate into land managed by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.

Walk approximately 1 mile on the main road to a developed parking area and trailhead kiosk. Check the map on the kiosk to verify public land from private land. Hike through the gate and follow the trail makers for a 1.3 mile loop. Some of the trail is inundated this week and detours are required unless you wear rubber boots.
