Spokane’s Bowl and Pitcher trailhead and its accompanying trails were named one of the best running areas in the U.S. by Men’s Journal.
No. 5 of 15, in fact.
The No. 1 area was Discovery Trail in Long Beach Peninsula, Washington.
It’s a completely arbitrary ranking but it’s worth note. Plus, the photo in the Men’s Journal article was taken by The Spokesman-Review’s very own Libby Kamrowski.
In particular, Men’s Journal highlights the suspension bridge and notes that the variety of trails offers something for all types of runners.
“It’s an excellent choice for any level of runner in the spring, summer, and early fall (when snow comes, try snowshoeing here),” the article states.
