|Map of Zintel Canyon (Blue=Spirit of America Trail, Red=Footpath)|
Location: There are two entrances: one is is on the corner of Vancouver and 7th (where the green marker is in the picture above) and the other is on Ely Street (at the bottom of the loop in the picture), and that is right next to Waste Management. If you look on Google Maps, which you can do by clicking the location at the bottom of this post, it will even have Zintel Canyon and the Spirit of America trail labeled.

Pet Friendly?: Yes! Just remember to be courteous please!
Parking: There is a parking lot at a small playground pictured above at the corner of Vancouver and 7th and there is another parking lot off of Ely Street in Kennewick next to Waste Management.
Level of Difficulty: Easy-Medium
The footpath goes up and down a lot, but the Spirit of America trail is relatively flat.
Distance: 2.5 mile loop
The Spirit of America Trail is 1.25 miles (blue trail on the map), and the Foot Path is also 1.25 miles (red trail on the map). As you can see on the map, the footpath crosses over to Spirit of America for about 0.2 miles.

Doesn't it look beautiful? These pictures are even during the winter--it's even more incredible in the summer and fall. It's not smart to go through the canyon alone, so please grab a walking/running buddy and go try it out!
