Hiking Palouse to Cascades Trail - Tekoa Trailhead

The trailhead for this section of the Palouse to Cascades Trail is found just south of Spokane and west of Tekoa.

Finding the access can be tricky for this section of the trail: just north of Tekoa, turn west on Lone Pine Road. Proceed approximately a mile to Summer Road and turn south. Summer Road is marked on maps, but does not have a road sign, so watch carefully — it's the first road on the left. The road crosses the Palouse to Cascades Trail just after the turn-off, and there's enough of a wide spot for at least two vehicles. However, it's very limited parking; carpool to this trailhead and don't block the road.

The trail heads two directions from here. To the east (toward Tekoa), the trail is in good shape, and will make for a nice 3.4 mile, out-and-back trek to town. However, heading west visitors will find more encroaching vegetation.
