Stunning views + lupine meadows hiking at Mt. Spokane, Washington

Hiking at Mount Spokane in Washington State is so beautiful and gives you absolutely STUNNING views of the valley below.

Mount Spokane State Park is located about an hour and 15 minutes, or 35-40 miles, from Spokane proper. In the wintertime, it’s a popular spot to ski but in the off-season, it’s a beautiful spot to get outside and go for a hike or picnic.

When you make it to the peak, near the ski slopes, you can walk to the Vista House, a historic home near the fire lookout and where you can find some of the BEST VIEWS EVER of the surrounding areas.

It took my breath away the first time I saw it. You can see the neighboring Spokane Valley, north Idaho panhandle, and Canada!

After gawking at the views, my family and I hiked trail 130. It’s technically a 12-mile loop but we only did a few miles since my grandparents were hiking with us. It’s a fairly easy hike, with a pretty steady elevation change and well-travelled trail.

This hike is stunning because it takes you through lupine meadows,

Forest greenery,

And gives you an opportunity to observe the nature around you.

I always drag my family to visit Mount Spokane nearly every time I visit because it is one of my favorite places to visit in the summertime. There’s just something incredibly peaceful about it. I hope that if you’re ever in the area, you get the opportunity to visit this stunning spot.
