Adopt-a-Trail Program

Mount Spokane State Park is in the process of implementing an Adopt-a-Trail program!  Please contact the volunteer program by emailing mountspokanetrails@gmail.com if you’d like to help the park by adopting a trail!  The process for trail adoption as it currently stands is that the group doing the adoption would be responsible for clearing downfall, brushing out the trail, working on trail tread or water drainage issues, and possibly picking up litter along the adopted trail (we ask that groups do not engage in larger projects without specific approval from the park manager; additionally, should an adopting group encounter a trail issue that is too large or beyond the groups’ ability to tackle, that project will become the responsibility of the park—just let us know what was found).  We request that groups visit their adopted trail at least three times per year, although a group may choose to volunteer more frequently.  Specific dates and times for trail work are up to the group, although we do require that a leader for the group submit a volunteer timesheet and send a brief trail report following each volunteer session (it is helpful for the park to know the number of volunteer hours each group provides).  This information can be sent via email to the address at the top of this page, or a print copy can be placed in one of the pay station kiosks should the park office be closed at the time your group completes volunteer work.

Here are our recently adopted trails:
