Spokane Updates

Progress on WTA's Trails Rebooted work in the Spokane Area.

The recreation community in Spokane has demonstrated a passion for trails that is unparalleled. The area has a shorter hiking and trail maintenance season thanks to regular snowfall, but that hasn’t stopped WTA’s volunteer community from seeking out creative opportunities to stay engaged. WTA is expanding our opportunities for volunteers to invest in close-to-home trails to meet Spokane’s growing population and demand for great hiking.
