Known as scq’wulsm to the Spokane tribe, Mount Spokane is the largest of Washington's State Parks at a generous 13,919 acres. It’s a wonderful resource for outdoor sports like skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, mountain biking and camping. At roughly 60 mins from downtown Spokane, it’s the perfect nature getaway and a scenic drive at that. -- Mount Spokane was named in 1912 by businessman Francis H. Cook, who built a road that reached almost the summit. Prior to 1912 it was known as Mt Baldy and had no direct vehicle access. In the early 1930’s the Spokane Ski Club purchased 500 acres of the land closest to the summit and built ski lifts and lodges. The Civilian Conservation Corps crew from Riverside State Park built the iconic vista house in 1933. Aside from these alteration Mount Spokane remains very well preserved as a protected state park. -- Wildlife on Mt Spokane include Moose, Deer, Elk, Marmots, birds and more, just be sure to keep a safe distance. At the summit, you can view 7 lakes with a telescope, including lake Pend O’Reille and Coeur d’Alene. The summit is accessible by car starting mid-June, once the last snows have cleared. As you might imagine, sunrise and sunsets here can be remarkable. I can’t wait for summer to fully explore Mt Spokane on foot! ... See more
