"Mount Spokane State Park covers 13,643 acres and is Washington’s largest state park. In the heart of the park is 5,282-foot-high Mount Kit Carson. While the hike to the summit is only moderately difficult, the view from the top is among 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.
Walk northwest from the parking area, up the Mount Spokane Summit Road for about 60 yards to the junction with the Mount Kit Carson Loop Road, which is the starting point of this hike."
