I finally found the time to run this stretch of the Little Spokane River this summer and wished I had done this years ago. I put in at the boat launch near St. George's school (turn left at the entrance and it is about a half mile down the road on your right--a Discovery Pass is needed if you park your car at the launch). I went at 6:45 am on a Monday morning and had the river to myself all the way down to the take out spot near Nine Mile dam. The river is a gentle ride with no development on either side of the river. Not deep and not too fast. Lots of ducks. Saw two bald eagles and one osprey. If you paddle all the way the trip takes ninety minutes. If you choose to just drift with the current it can take up to three hours. You would never know while paddling down this river that the city of Spokane is close by. You feel like you are miles and miles from civilization. Peaceful and quiet. Weekends are a bit busier so early morning of week days is the best time for this peaceful time out on the water. Do it today.
