Mount Kit Carson Summit Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Mount Spokane State Park covers 13,643 acres, more than any other state park in the Evergreen State. In the heart of Washington’s largest state park is 5,282-foot-high Mount Kit Carson.

The hike to the summit of Mount Kit Carson is not particularly difficult, but the view from the top is one of the best in the park. Wildlife abounds here but is often difficult to spot because of the dense vegetation. You will, however, almost undoubtedly see the tracks of deer and elk and possibly those of a moose or a bear.

Pets must be on a leash and under physical control at all times. Mountain bikes and horses are also allowed on most of this route, as are cross-country skiers during the winter."

Really a nice hike if you continue to the top. Probably the toughest hike within 20 miles of Spokane as it has some nice elevation gain and a beautiful outlook. Gets confusing at times as the trail splits, we stayed to the left and had a great outlook once we got to the top. I wouldn't try and hike it until mid June because of possible snow. Definitely one of the, if not best hikes in the Spokane area.

Trail was not the best way to get to the top. Trail #110 was a lot better
