Liberty Lake Stateline Trail Description

The 1.8-mile Liberty Lake Stateline Trail is situated between Interstate 90 and Appleway Road in Liberty Lake, Washington. A moderately flat 10-foot wide paved surface makes walking or riding easy. The majority of the trail adjacent to I-90 rests on the former Spokane and Inland Empire railbed.

The railroad, an electric interurban, built this section of line in the early 20th century to link the towns of Spokane, Washington, and Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. The line was abandoned in the 1970's and the rail was removed during the 1980's and 1990's.

The eastern trailhead of the Liberty Lake Stateline Trail connects with the Spokane River Centennial Trail at Spokane Bridge Road. Traveling westward, the trail parallels I-90 towards newly developed portions of Liberty Lake.

The trail was constructed in the summer of 2002. Trees were added along the trail by Spokane County the following year.

Parking and Trail Access

There is a large parking lot at the east trailhead on the corner of Spokane Bridge Road and E. Appleway Avenue. This lot provides the best access to the trail. There are no parking fees. There is no parking available at the west trailhead.

Liberty Lake Stateline Trail Reviews

It's a short trail ... but better than the alternative.

s

This trail connects the Spokane Centennial Trail (near the Washington/Idaho border) - and Appleway Road in Liberty Lake Washington.

It is possible to ride along the shoulders of Appleway - all the way from Spokane Bridge Road into Liberty Lake, but the Eastern end of Appleway isn't really bike/trike friendly. It has narrow-to-non-existent shoulders. It's not anywhere near flat. And, is a fairly heavily traveled road (for two lanes.)

This trail bypasses the two-lane portion and connects the Centennial Trail with Appleway near where the road widens into four-lane. The remaining section of Appleway into Liberty Lake is quite bike/trike friendly.

That's my two cents.
