Mt. Spokane Road Closure
The paved road into the park at the main entrance will be closed to all recreational traffic from
July 18, 2016 until about October 7, 2016. During this period a contractor will be building a new
road bed and installing a box culvert near the park entrance. The road will also be resurfaced all
the way to the snowmobile parking lot. Visitors may park for free at Bear Creek Lodge or in
front of the park office, but only condo owners, workers and park staff may drive further.
Visitors will be able to access Trails 140 and 120 from the lodge and Trails 110, 121, and 122 by
walking up the creek side of the road from the office. Visitors may also continue to use the
Tallman Road (hikers only) and Day Road entrances. The campground remains open for
backpackers and the park should be much quieter during this closure.

About The Friends of Mount Spokane State Park
We are blessed to have a mountain in the backyard of our urban sprawl. Visit Mt. Spokane and see all the beauty and adventure altitude brings. (Visit Photo Album)
The Friends of Mt. Spokane State Park was formed in 1995 as a means for coordinating volunteer involvement in the Park and as a vehicle for raising funds to support Park projects. It became a 501(c)(3) tax exempt non-profit
organization in 1996. It is governed by a 15 member, broadly based, volunteer board of directors which meets several times a year. Meetings are open to all and offer an opportunity to present and discuss issues affecting
Park management, use, and protection with Park staff and volunteers.
The Mt. Spokane State Park Advisory Committee was formed just prior to the Friends Group in 1995 with members chosen by the Director of the
Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission. The mission for that group was to assist in the creation of a consensus based master plan for the Park. Since that objective was achieved, the Committee was formally
dissolved in 2013.
We encourage you to support The Friends of Mt Spokane State Park by making a donation or becoming a volunteer. The work of the Friends Group is chronicled in the annual newsletter known as the Moose Call. If you are
