Located just two miles north of the Spokane County line in Pend Oreille county, this park boasts a seven-mile trail system that includes both deep, dark forest and scenic vistas. Spend a day exploring the system in its entirety, or choose a shorter loop by piecing together some of the shorter trails.

In the summer, first-come, first-serve camping is available for only $15 per night. The day use picnic area is free. Although the picnic and camping area is closed during the winter months, the first access point adjacent to Highway 2 is open year-round (limited parking). When snow makes the high country is inaccessible, give this park a try for snowshoeing or a winter stroll. In the spring, return to see the wildflowers. Trail names like Ladyslipper, Arrowleaf Ridge, and Pentstemon Point give a hint about which flowers may be glimpsed along the route.

Before you go, visit the Pend Oreille county website at and print a hard copy of the trail system, as on-site signage is poor.

Getting There

From Spokane, take Highway 2 north towards Newport. The park is approximately 2 miles north of the Spokane/Pend Oreille County Line. Turn left (west) at the signed entrance to the park. A small year-round parking lot is adjacent to the highway; a larger day-use area is located farther down the access road, but is only open from Memorial Day until Labor Day.
