What's your favorite hiking area, trail, path, park around Spokane?? Area outside of Spokane too; areas that are a short day drive? And if you have pics why not post them here; you can go to photobucket.com and post them there and then copy a link of the pic and post that link here. That gets you a full size pic; not the postage size one if you just post the pic here directly. Look forward to learning more about what Spokane has to offer outdoor lovers.

Although I hadn't the foresight in my youth when I lived there to take pictures I spent a good amount of time in the Dishman Hills.

I do however have pictures of my trips to Glacier National Park...although that may be stretching it on the around Spokane part depending on how fast you drive once reaching the MT border.

Funny that you bring them up, my wife has been following them for a while and we plan to work with them as soon as we move up there.

nordic why not go ahead and post your glacier pics, it's within a days trip from spokane so lots of outsiders may not realize it's that close....be great to see them....r u familiar with photobucket.com??? it's lots better then the postage stamp pic that you get if you just post directly here....

If you take highway 2 north and make a right on Day Mt. Spokane road and keep going until you eneter Mt. Spokane state park there are several turn offs with trail heads at them. Some very cool trails with total tree coverage.

Also some pretty cool trails on W. Rutter pkwy at Aubrey L. White park.
