Trail Description
About this trail
A plethora of trails and routes covering this small mountain sitting on the eastern edge of the city of Spokane. There are a few jeep trails mainly along the power line route headed to the NE, but mainly just a lot of singletrack. No real signage although some of the locals have attempted to color-code some routes with ribbon, paint, etc. Some technical routes and some long, fast runs through the forest.

Trail Q&A
Rider Questions


Q: Is there anywhere to camp nearby? -Guest

A: I am trying to figure out the same thing. Sounds like the Washington State Parks are the only option for legitimate camping. Bowl and Pitcher looks nice but is very popular. Mt Spokane doesn't seem to have any pay or dispersed site camping. Forest service land is far from the area, might be better off going north to the Sandpoint area. I just came up on and found a spot on the Palouse for pretty cheap, about 30 mins from downtown Spokane. Good luck!

Review: Wow, great trail. You can choose what level you want. The green trails are really green; not too steep, smooth, flowy. Blue have a bit more up/down, more swoopy. Enough mileage here. No big climbs.
If you want to up your game, go for the black trails, with big drops, ramps,etc.
Highly recommended

Review: This trail system has been what has helped me develop my admittedly noob mtb skills. There are some quite easy trails with no jumps/obstacles but there are definitely opportunities to push ones self far past what I will ever do. There are 6 ft drops and a fair amount of dh trails. Every time I've ridden the trails are well maintained and very clean. A great park to learn and have a lot of fun!

Review: On Upriver drive there is a disc golf course near the camp sekani and you can park there. Ride up the nearby service road to the bike park then up the hills and you can find trails everywhere. Head east and you can easily get up to the antennas on Beacon Hill and just have so much fun riding the trails that crisscross the whole park. Lots of flowy trails, bumpy rails and some real techie trails. Something for absolutely everyone. I'm a beginner, and I spent hours riding and admiring this area. Spokane is very lucky to have this place. I'll be back with more time and lots of water - it is hot and dry.

Review: Had only 90 minutes this afternoon and made the most of it. Rode up the singletrack from the golf course and played around on the east side of the hill. There are tons of rolling, flowy singletrack, difficult climbs and therefore terrifying DH. Pick a trail, pin your ears back, and have a good time. Nubs, beware, there are trails for you here, but things can get out of hand very quickly. Rode here a day letter (06/04) and as I had a better feel for the layout I had even more fun. There's just tons of narrow, smooth and swooping singletrack all over the place that seems to go on forever. There's plenty of techy DH if your into that, and if not, there's plenty other things to keep you interested. I LOVE this place-it will leave a grin on your face for a long while!

Review: I fell in love with Beacon last year. It really ranges from beginner to expert. There are huge drops like Girthmore to chilling track like Rabid Rabbit. The true beauty lies in the natural terrain. The exposed basalt and granite make for completely unique terrain. Yes there are man made features and a new ridiculous rhythm section at Sekani, but this Hill is unique. Fat Tire keep the trails the riders respect it. Go rip it!

Review: Not just for advanced riders. My daughter and I ride it on days that won't be busy. We work our way up and have a fun ride down. Typically we ride up to the switch backs before the towers. Very fun ride.
