Day Mountain Loop Trail- Mount Spokane State Park Professional Review and Guide

"Rising above the Spokane Valley and neighboring Rathdrum Prairie, 5883- foot Mount Spokane is a prominent local landmark. A southern outpost of the Selkirk Mountains, it’s also a local favorite spot for outdoor recreation, particularly for skiers and mountain bikers.

There’s plenty of room for hikers and their dogs, too, in this 13,800-acre park. The trip to Day Mountain, a shoulder of Mount Spokane, makes for an excellent hike. With a trailhead that begins at 5000 feet and a destination just slightly higher, the elevation gain on this trip is minimal. Day Mountain is one of the quieter peaks in the park, and chances are you’ll encounter only a handful of other trail users. And although the views from this summit are not quite as good as those from nearby Mount Kit Carson, Day’s meadows are grander."

"Walk back out the parking lot entrance and cross Summit Road to Trail No. 130, a nice single-track that starts in an old burn area with open views of the Spokane Valley. Soon the openings trend to grassy meadows and then turn to a forest of older, more scattered trees."
