| What: Beautiful view, great
single-track trail, for advanced riders as it is rough and rocky. This trail goes all the
way down to Nine Mile Falls at the Spokane River and can be connected with other trails
easily. It connects with the Pine Bluff trail called Stick in the Eye right
above the switchback. Stay to the right to come out just north of Deep Creek connection
with the Spokane River. The first time I rode this, it was way foggy, and flocks of geese
were honking overhead. About half way down there is a trail junction with a place to pull
out and munch some carbos with a view of the Deep Creek canyon that knocked my eyes out.
Condensed fog dripping off the helmet & cobwebs in the tall trees growing from the
canyon bottom right up above my head so old. Very rewarding, but if I wouldn't have
stopped here for rest I would have missed it for watching for steering around all the
rocks. Next spring I will get a picture of this for this web page. See added

| Where: From Division, go
west on Francis to 7 Mile Road. Turn left on 7 Mile and drive a mile or two, and over Deep
Creek. Take a right at Pine Bluff Road,
N 47º 44' 597" W 117º
33' 439" and immediately turn right into the parking lot at the bottom of the
hill. Park here, and take your bike up the hill, over Coulee Creek. Keep a watch out for a
hard-to-spot trail on the right, leading up the hill.
N 47º 44'
665" W 117º 33' 742" There is a trail post, indicating that this is a
shared access trail. Many of these trails are steep and/or rocky so I would not bring
young inexperienced children along on this one as it is too rough for the inexperienced.
This trail is very hard for me and my wife who was brave enough to come with me once,
pushed her bike almost all the way. Topological Map
| Cautions: Very rocky trail
demands your attention. Be skillful with clipless pedals here, and watch for coming around
a tight corner to find a large log across the trail.
