Indian Canyon Falls in April 2011

I should have written about this waterfall years ago. I visited Indian Canyon Falls in April 2011, and I distinctly remember enjoying my visit to Indian Canyon Falls, but I don’t remember many of the other details about the hike. Was it a difficult hike? I don’t remember? How long is the hike? Not really sure. And searching online doesn’t seem to provide a whole lot of clear information, even 8 years later. It seems to be a hidden gem still.

Indian Canyon Falls is right outside of Spokane. I stumbled upon it searching online. It’s not in many books about waterfalls of the Pacific Northwest. I don’t remember it being a particularly difficult hike nor do I remember it being long, but it’s been a while. It seems from searching that the hike is a short one, but that it is of moderate difficulty. When I visited in April, there seemed to be more water flowing over the falls than I have seen in some other pictures. I still found it to be a beautiful waterfall, and if you’re in the Spokane area, I would encourage you to seek out Indian Canyon Falls.

Directions:

  1. I’m just going to provide the last few steps you’ll probably take to get to the parking area for the falls. You’ll end up on N Government Way at some point. You’ll want to head north, likely.
  2. Turn left on W Greenwood Rd.
  3. After about 1000 feet, you’ll then split left onto S Indian Canyon Drive. You should come to a parking area at W Canyon Drive (at least that’s what it shows on Google).
  4. I don’t remember if there were numbered trails. One website refers to using trail 121…The waterfall seemed easy enough to find.

Accessibility: 6/10 (Moderate)
Height: ~30′
Length of Hike: 1 mile round-trip (?)
