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.
