Fish Lake Trail Explanation

The Fish Lake Trail actually leaves western Spokane and operates south through available woodland to achieve Queen Lucas Lake, which can be 1.5 kilometers north associated with path’s ultimate destination that is planned Fish Lake Regional Park. Upon conclusion of the space, two bridges over active train lines will join this path to 3.5 paved kilometers associated with the Columbia Plateau Trail, serving as a corridor for commuting and entertainment between Spokane as well as the university town of Cheney.

The route follows a mild uphill grade; to your left, trees separate you from US 195 for a couple miles and then from Cheney Spokane Road, which loosely parallels the trail from the Spokane trailhead. Half-mile markers guide you through the hot, dry uplands of Eastern Washington.
