We are pleased to announce a new pilot program to groom cross country ski and fat bike trails at select locations around Spokane this winter. Grooming conditions are very weather dependent; Please call our snowline at 509.363.5418 for updated information. Please heed all signage on trails and follow best practices when using groomed trails.
A big thank you to the folks who made this happen: Indian Canyon Golf Course crews, Downriver Golf Course crews, Park Operations, Urban Forestry, Wheel Sport, Bike Hub & Evergreen East Mountain Bike Alliance, Mountain Gear, Fitness Fanatics, Spokane County Parks and Recreation, WA State Parks, Palisades Park Neighborhood, and Volunteers Groomers.
Due to downed trees and other potential hazards left over from the windstorm on January 13, we will not be grooming Indian Canyon this season. We will start grooming Dwight Merkel Sports Complex and Riverside State Park 7 Mile trail head when we receive 5-6 inches of snow or more and temperature remain around freezing. Grooming schedules will be Riverside on Fridays and Merkel on Thursdays as conditions and resources allow.
