The Etter Ranch hiking area south of the Antoine Peak Conservation Area is slated to open in late October.
Spokane County purchased the 231-acre property in 2019 using conservation futures’ money. Since then, volunteers have built a network of trails. The county is waiting for construction of a trailhead which could start “any day,” Knowles said.
Eventually, trails in Etter Ranch will connect with Antoine Peak’s existing network.
