Mount Spokane is the highest point in Spokane County and it is one of the tallest peaks in the Inland Northwest. Mount Spokane is surrounded by Mount Spokane State Park, the largest of Washington's State Parks at 13,919 acres. Mount Spokane even has a small non-profit organization that operates the Mount Spokane Ski and Snowboard Park, located on the southwest portion of the mountain. In summer you can drive to the top. In spring, snow patches keep the road closed and made for a pleasant walk-up when I was there. There are all kinds of trails in both summer and winter in Mount Spokane State Park. I've put several links down below to maps and websites for additional information.
The forested park features stands of old-growth timber and granite rock outcroppings. In winter, the park receives 300 inches of snow.
