The Fish Lake Trail is an 11.2-mile long paved pathway located to the southwest of Spokane in Eastern Washington. The trail was constructed along the abandoned railroad right-of-way of the Union Pacific Railroad. The route goes through the natural areas to the south of Spokane and includes miles of forest land and rugged hills to each side.

Much of the route is remote and is located away from major roadways and traffic. There are few road crossings and it makes for a great family outing.


The Fish Lake Trail has paved and unpaved portions. The trail is open for bike riding, running and walking. There is an elevation change of 325 feet over the 11.2 miles, but the average grade is less than 1%.


The Fish Lake Trail goes past or close by to the following communities: Spokane, Gelger Heights, Marshall and Cheney.
