This trail is gorgeous and lush. I took the entire loop and wasn't disappointed. Not only is there a great hike but also great primitive camping.

This is a wonderful hike during much of the year. You can climb the first section and enjoy the vista across the Palouse. It is especially lovely in the spring when the wild flowers bloom. The trail continues up and around. In spring the decent...More

The Pine Loop Trail was damp but not overly muddy until near the top. Coming back down the back side there are patches of snow and ice that are slick. There is room to navigate carefully along side. The wind in the pines, the moss...More

Steptoe Butte affords visitors the most spectacular unobstructed views of the undulating Palouse landscape. Repeat visits throughout the year reveal seasonal changes as fields of various dry land crops are plowed, planted, nurtured, and harvested in their cycles. You need no guide, just your camera...More

Great place for a hike or a picnic---but lots of insects, so bring some bug repellent. Beautiful scenery and good facilities (restrooms).

For the area of rolling hills and farmland, it's great to have this park with a forested covered hike. Pretty steep hike, but not long, kids of all ages could manage. Good for a hot day, picnic area is nice. My only complaint is they...More

You can hike just part way up and view some of the countryside, which is getting greener by the day. When you come back down, your child might enjoy the playground area under the big trees.

I'd rather hike Kamiak Butte any day over Steptoe Butte because of its beautiful forest, although I don't remember much hiking on Steptoe -- you just drive around and around until reaching the top. Both have great views... More
