This property managed as part of Riverside State Park contains 701 acres of mountainous area with canyons and ravines. It supports mature Ponderosa pine on the south-facing slopes and Douglas fir on the cooler, wetter north-facing slopes. There are also some aspen groves and meadows scattered throughout the conservation area. The property borders Riverside State Park on its southern boundary and is within walking distance to the Little Spokane Natural Area and Indian Painted Rocks hiking trails.
The Knothead Loop Trail has been developed and marked along abandoned logging roads and is maintained by Washington State Parks. The trail traverses much of the conservation area and a portion of the Little Spokane Natural Area, providing views of Long Lake, City of Spokane, surrounding mountains, and aspen groves (Please note that dogs are not allowed in the Little Spokane Natural Area).
