Palisades City Park a treat for spring walkers

HIKING -- On the rimrock bluff overlooking Spokane Falls Community College, spring walkers can enjoy a year-round feast of views over Spokane as well as a splash of wildflowers and blooming serviceberry that will be approaching a peak in about two weeks.

Since the Rimrock Drive was blocked off to motor vehicles, the area once plagued by garbage dumping and partying has become a haven for hikers.  Stay on the Rimrock Drive for easy walking or follow the dirt trails, some of which lead to a waterfall between the rimrock and Indian Canyon Golf Course.

Find out how to get a trails map and information on the area at the Palisades Neighborhood and Conservation Area website.
