Saltese Flats Wetland and Trails

Spokane County Environmental Services is restoring wetlands at Saltese Flats. Restored wetlands in that area will provide benefits in several ways including:

  • Delaying runoff to recharge the Spokane Valley-Rathdrum Prairie Aquifer to increase flow in the Spokane River during late summer months
  • Restoring a diverse wildlife habitat
  • Providing a community resource for public access and education
  • Allowing for possible future application of Class A reclaimed water
The trails are all open for public access along with two parking lots: one on the west side and one on the northeast side. Trail markers are to be installed in the fall of 2021.
