We love to hike and bike this trail. My 3 year old has a strider bike (no pedals) and loves charging along Fred flinstone style over the trail and rocks. Dress for the wind on the upper trails this time of year but enjoy seeing the new flowers budding.

This trail is inviting, good for all ages and adventurous. You will sweat on hotter days for their is not a lot of shady areas. It could use a litter crew as well. Great asset to community.

Visit here for wine tasting, and make Cowiche Canyon Trail a must stop for dinner. They have amazing food, great drinks, and a great atmosphere. Your better off to have a reservation but well worth the wait! LOVE this place.

Took two nice little hikes with 2 dogs, once from each end. Very pleasant hike crossing the creek via bridge numerous times. Places to stop and walk down to water. The hike is completely flat, but each time I took a side detour up to the rocky overlooks. Lots of vegetation and ambience.

The place is an average hiking spot with amazing trail chain running around it. Snow Mountain Ranch is an adjacent trail system and both offer some of the best views of the yakima valley. A great outdoor place for family and kids with little bit of history in the offer

Very good restaurant, nice food, friendly atmosphere, seems a hit with the locals. One weird thing though. Due to the architecture of the building it is nearly impossible to find your way in to the restaurant!! The door is disguised. It sounds weird to say that but when you see it you will agree

There are several parking lots and ways to get to the Cowiche Canyon trail depending on what you are looking for. Snow Mountain Ranch is the ending of the trail the farthest from Yakima with the starting point being the Lower Cowiche Canyon trail parking lot off Cowiche Canyon Rd. In between the trail goes up to Scenic Drive, down... More

creative and delicious salads and something for everyone. The things they do with food is fun and just a little bit outside the box. Not so different that it is weird, but just slightly inventive.

This is actually a series of trails. The one which follows the creek through the base of the canyon is scenic and incredibly well maintained. Ignore the animosity of local infill landholders.

We went through the bottom part. There wasn't much to look at and it was surrounded by people's homes, so when you're walking you see their properties.
