Directions: From downtown Spokane, take Riverside Avenue west to Government Way. Turn right on Government Way, then take the second left onto Greenwood Road. Follow Greenwood about a mile to the intersection with Basalt Road. That is the southern tip of Palisades Park.

This 464-acre park is considered both conservation land and a city park and includes views of the city and Mount Spokane, basalt rock outcrops, natural vegetation, and a wildlife area.
Today the Palisades Neighborhood keeps a close watch over this land. Check out their website. They keep the trails clear, sell maps, and ask that hikers and horseback riders alike leave no trace.
