It is hard to believe that this area is so close to an urban environment. We like to put our kayaks in at the launch point near St. George's and pull out at the take out near 9-mile. During our trip on Sunday we got to see and hear lots of birds, ducks, blue heron, a golden eagle, fish, turtles, and a bull moose. We look forward to our next visit. Please remember that you need a Washington State Discovery Pass at both the put-in and take-out location and it closes at dusk. There is a shuttle service on Saturdays.

In at St. George's School (or upstream at the Natural Area), floated once to the bridge, then repeated the same all the way to Long Lake. Sweet trips, well worth the day.

Didn't see the sign but saw no dogs on internet - strange, we hike the "Centennial Trail" & adjoining trails with dogs, bikes etc. & the only complication is a silent bike flying by you scaring the scat out of you LOL ! Doesn't almost everyone own or exercise a pet ? We completed the hike without seeing a soul except a farm dog (imagine that)! Back to our dog trails !

You can do a lot here in the area, but we had an awesome canoe trip on the Little Spokane River! You can do a long or short float, and we took the longer 7 mile option and put in at St George's. What a great range of scenery and types of water. From slow and fairly deep, to shallow with some light speed and really nice bends, it's wrapped with great scenery and lot of animals. While definitely not a technical float, it's enjoyable for the whole family and perfect for beginners going solo to long canoes with a few friends. Plus, it seems like it's in the middle of nowhere, even though civilization is all around. Mostly dead quiet the whole way except for birds and the splashing of your own oars, you have nothing to distract you except the varied beauty along the way, and maybe a few sweepers here and there, just mine your line on the bends, and you'll be fine. Not to be missed if you're a floater and are in Spokane for any reason. Rent a sit-on-top kayak if you have to, and enjoy a day on this hidden gem!
