Antoine Peak- Spokane, Wa
Distance: 3.92 miles
Elevation Gain: 770
Activity: Trail run/hike/mtb
Let me begin by saying, at just over 3300 feet the title of "Peak" may be just a touch of an exaggeration. That being said, it's still an awesome place to hike, bike, horseback ride & snowshoe.
I was excited to test my bike out on some downhill fun after a good climb but I managed to break my bike like 100 feet down the trail. Boo!!! I hiked up the 2 miles & almost 800 feet of elevation gain to the summit instead. It was a fabulous hike to train for my upcoming Spartan race.
The trail is a mix of single tracks & double tracks which is for the most part are in really good shape. There are some wash outs from winter but I'm sure the various volunteer clubs currently working in that area will have those cleaned up in no time.
