Typical woodland environment on Mt Spokane

Eastern Washington. Mount Spokane has many great hiking, biking, and equestrian trails - day hikes that easily accommodate all interests and abilities. The trails are used year-round, and because of this the trails need to be heavily maintained and improved to withstand the continual foot/tire/hoof traffic. This is a new project for WTA on Mount Spokane and we will be installing several bridges along the 100 trail just above the lower Kit Carson Loop Trail. The bridges will be constructed out of native material. This will be a very fun project and we hope you will join us to help the Park on their endeavor to upgrade these trails.

Mt Spokane is laced with a 100 mile trail system that is popular with hikers, bikers and equestrians in the summer and with skiers and snowshoers in the winter. The trail system runs from the base of the mountain to the summit and covers varied ecosystems ranging from deep pine and cedar forests to open meadows. Wildlife including deer, moose, the occasional bear and cougar can be found on the slopes of this mountain.

Driving directions:
Take US rte 2 (Newport Highway) to the junction with State Route 206, known as Mt Spokane Park Drive. Follow that 15.3 miles to the park entrance and drive 1.8 miles farther to the Lower Loop Road trailhead known locally as "the hairpin turn." There is a parking lot where volunteers can park.
