Hit this great mountain as part of a 35-mile trail running tour of the area. Also hit Day Mountain, Kit-Carson, & Quartz.
I remember hiking to the top with my family as a child. Very easy, a great day hike, you can drive to the top if you so desire!
Detour while passing through the area.
Did the Drive up. Beautiful views from up there.
It was a rainy day down in the lower elevations. The weather on the mountain was actually quite nice and clear above a layer of clouds. There were no other hikers on the trails either.
This wasn't my first time up here, but I've always rode the lift up, this time I biked up from Mead, WA. Cool views in the Summer and fun to ride back down.
Drove most of the way up - had to hike about a mile as I recall, due to snow.
A great area for hiking and enjoying the peace and quiet.
It took about an hour to hike the ski run from base to the summit. Then my brother and I spent some time at the Vista house before crossing the summit plateau to check out other locations. Still 3-5 feet of snow on top. The foot glissading (skiing on shoes) was tons of fun and very fast on the way down. The view was pretty sweet, although, it wasn't from 10000 feet like Sandia. Still a very fun enjoyable trip.
Mount Spokane is a good day destination in all seasons. Sunsets from the mountain can be fantastic...
Climbed from the lowest trail. When we got to the top it was very windy. When coming down I stumbled upon a mother moose protecting her child. Almost got trampled, but than God it turned around before trampling me.
Drove up to summit on the way back to TriCities, hiked up Blacktail Mountain near Cocolalla the day before. Girlfriend Kelsey made the hike with me!
Nice sunny day. I did it with two carloads of relatives from Spokane. WA P3k 1/52
While en route to Montana for the weekend, my family took a side-trip to the summit of Mount Spokane. The weather was great, and there was no snow at the summit ridge except for a few minor patches near the communication tower. The Vista House was very interesting, as were the rocky slabs on the upper slopes near that side of the mountain. Mount Spokane put me over the 50% mark for WA CoHPs (20/39), and I could not have asked for better company to enjoy the moment.
Many times and with many people. Did the "Seven Summits" hike once (100 Hikes in the Inland Northwest). A tough day.
I've hiked, biked, snowshoed, skinned, and ran up this mountain too many times to count. I always have a great time and I'm very thankful to have such a great place in my backyard.
My second time on this mountain. This time drove up with my mom, wife and son. Great views on a crisp autumn day.
Combined it Kit Carson from the parking about a mile up from the ranger station. Scared off a bear along the way.
