Entrance Loop Trail. Great beginner snowshoeing trail. Very beautiful. Runs up trail post 121, then right at tp 120, and then right at tp 122 that creates the loop.

I went up trail 110, and head down 140, made it back to the parking lot on trail 100. It was a great loop and I’ll do it again.

Good hike. The snow was packed down. Didn’t need the snowshoes. Can’t wait until the next snow fall!

The trail was very packed down. Didn’t really even need to wear snowshoes. Lots of people and pets on the trail. Nice day to get out! Will definitely go back after some fresh snow.

Despite the description and highly rated reviews; do not bother with this trail in snow season. Visited 12/26/18 and I’ll tell you why.

The state park is managed annually by permit only in lieu of entry fees...meaning during snow season from November-April a discover pass will not allow you access to any of the trails in the park. During these months you must purchase a snow-park pass even if you have a discover pass.

The funds for the discover pass and snow park pass are two separate pools of money and do not go to the same agency...your snow park pass essentially pays for groomed roads and trails during the snow season.

With that being said all trails departing from Selkirk lodge are for Nordic/backcountry skiing only; snow shoeing nor hiking is allowed. We learned the hard way; backcountry skiers take that sh#t serious!

Lesson learned if going to Mt. Spokane in the snow season all trails south of Selkirk lodge are inaccessible via foot traffic. All backcountry trails, single track, snowmobile trails north of the lodge are fair game via foot, snowmobile or snow shoe.

I’ll review again after snow season. Hope this helps my fellow peeps.

Happy Trails :)

Pros: Accessible from Spokane, Protected area, Multi-Use trails
Cons: Entering the park requires a fee or pre-purchased pass, the scenery isnt that different than other free-access local areas, no large bodies of water to see or hike to
This is an area that I likely wont frequent that often, being an Idaho resident. I have driven through the park a few times and hiked there once. I started at trail 110 trailhead, and mostly ascended on 110 with brief time on neighboring trails as well. I enjoyed the hike, despite the bad weather , and I especially enjoyed the groves of mature cedars at the lower elevations, but the trail wasn't unique enough to really stick in my mind or prompt a return visit. I would likely come here far more often if I were a Spokane resident, but I have access to enough forest land in Idaho that I will go there instead, for the same , and often more spectacular, scenery.

Super easy to get to. The "trail" is actually a road. The view at the lookout is beautiful. Its a must do if you live in Eastern Washington.

It was an amazing drive all the way up to the ski lodge!
The view was breathtaking and the fall colors from up there and all along the road were stunning!

I loved how many signs there were. I definitely felt like there was no way I was going to get lost and that was awesome. The view from the top was pretty sweet too.

Love that you can change the difficulty or trail views to the top! Enjoyed a beer at the lookout with a good friend- was a wonderful day!

Great hike! Steep for the first .5 miles, steady incline for the most part after that. Took me 4 hours 15 min (2 hours to Day Mountain lookout, 30 min to Mt. Kit Carson, then the rest down) . Really well marked, only part I almost goofed at was the turn off to go to Day Mountain peak after following Kit Carson road, DON'T follow trail 130. I did it from 8:00 - 12:30, in early fall, saw almost nobody on the trail!

As mentioned previously, lots of options as far as trails to the top. Easy access to parking and a restroom at the lookout. looking forward to spending time there this winter.

Offers great views, a sense of accomplishment and in general, a confidence booster for beginner hikers!

Well maintained road. Good for families. Along the drive, there are numerous hiking trails with ranging difficulty levels.

Lots of trails to choose from. We took a 6year old and a 12year old, both did great on the trails. There also was a main road up to the lookout that you could take, which was pretty easy. Very wet and foggy today but would have had amazing views without it. Definitely reccomend for the whole family for a nice day hike! We would go again!

Used the black Nordic trails to Nova Hut then cut over to the green trail and up to the lookout. All is well marked. Any of the trails will get you there and are well kept - much of it old roads. Trail to the lookout is pretty steep with only a few switchbacks. The lookout itself was in use so we had a quick snack and headed back. Several clean restrooms along the way. Our counters showed 6.5 miles so I imagine it depends on which series of trails you choose to use. Saw a young bull moose along Eagle Crest trail - mutually scared the bajeezus out of him and us! All in all, a nice hike. I wish the smoke had cleared. The views would have been beautiful.

at the very peak of Mount Spokane happens to be a building which is called the Vista house during Open Season the Vista house is also open for the public to go inside usually, although I have come acrossed it once or twice when it's been all locked up during Open Season. regardless the view is phenomenal and I recommend it to anybody especially photographers and people who really appreciate nature

Gorgeous hike today. The problem with the trail is how hard it is to follow. It was enjoyable getting lost as you get great views from all sides of the mountain.

There were lots of huckleberry bushes that you stop and pick along the way in late July. It was very difficult for me to follow this trail. I got lost multiple times and ended up off trailing it to the top straight through a lot of bushes. Maybe I just missed the trail but parts of it seemed disconnected. The view from the top was beautiful though.

I park in the SnoPark lot at the intersection of Mount Spokane Park Drive and N Summit Rd. From there, cross the road to the Trail 131 trailhead. Follow 131 to the Bald Knob Picnic Area and head toward the road on the other side. Cross that portion of N Summit Rd and you'll see Trail 130. Follow 130 for about a mile and you'll come to the CCC Camp.

You'll want to take a moment to explore. From the stone walkway and steps leading to the cabin, to the stacked wood waiting to be burned in the fireplace inside, I almost wanted to set up camp myself.

From the CCC Camp, follow the dirt road until you see Trail 140 on your left. This is your final leg to the summit. One final push and the trail breaks into the parking lot by Chair One and the Vista House.

After taking in the setting sun and my fingers started to stop functioning from the cold, I knew I should probably head back down before dark, beings this is the only trail in my hiking history I've ever encountered a wolf on (most magical moment of my life).

I highly recommend exploring this little slice of Heaven in the summer!

Sometime in JUN JUL 18 this trail was decimated. Appears Mt SPOKANE Ski resort has added several new ski runs on that side of the mountain. If switchbacking turn after turn in very recent clear cuts. huge swaths down that side of the mountain then this your hell on earth. Concrete poured for the lifts. Bicycles have turned this into a talc like dust bowl. Views? You betcha cause all those ancient old growth trees are gone. If you’re a skier rejoice. Bikers should have it to themselves cause nobody in their right mind would waste time hiking here anymore. Gave 2 stars cause it’s close to the house. Be interesting to see how cougar deal with all this loss of habitat.

Beautiful views, easy walk, 23 species of birds seen.

great little hike. nice shade, and well groomed. definitely hike again.

Such a wonderful hike!! We clocked in at 15 miles which took about 6 hours. Big props the person that wrote the directions for this hike!

This only shows a portion of the Mt. Kit Carson Trail to summit that starts at Trail 100. I accidentally deleted the recording of the majority of the trail. Regardless, this 6.1 mike trail is an out and back trail that is dog friendly and traverses through dense forest to arrive at a 360 degree view from the summit!

Most of the trail has only very slight elevation gain, the only exception being the initial section as you ascend Trail 110 where this recording took place and then another section near the summit.

This trip took us 3 hours, including a 10 minute rest at the top.

A great half- day hike!!

Great hike with awesome views! Quite a few different routes you can take!

Great place for hiking in the Spokane area. Tons of different trails and hikes to do. My favorite is Mt. Kit Carson, a lot less people and mountain bikers than the Mt. Spokane summit

A very fun hike, especially if you start from the bottom at trail 110. The trails are very well groomed and the top is totally worth it.
