This is a simple out-and-back hike along the Palouse to Cascades Trail. We'll turn around at a Trestle. Weather permitting, we should get some views of some of the mountains along the valley and perhaps even some waterfalls.

The park closes at dusk though seeing as dusk will be at 9:49 PM for the hike we should be able to finish the hike with time to spare.
