The Inland Northwest Trails Coalition is devoted to conservation and trail corridors. Managed by volunteers, we welcome you to share our enthusiasm for this area. Take advantage of our links, contacts, trails and conservation area information and consider volunteering information and insights about your favorite places. We welcome your participation and interest in our meetings.

Inland Northwest Trails Coalition, Spokane County Building and Planning, Spokane County Parks, Golf, and Recreation invite you to check out the Spokane County Regional Trails Plan section of Spokane County Comprehensive Plan 2014. The plan identifies (inventories) existing trails, identifies general corridors and notes specific trail construction.  These trails include the Centennial Trail as the backbone of a trail system, Fish Lake Trail (FLT), Urban Connections, Rails to Trails conversions (in addition to FLT/Columbia Plateau Trail), the Spokane River water trail, and the Parks to Peaks corridors which connects public land (Department of Natural Resources, Bureau of Land Management, local and state parks) providing wildlife corridors. 
The plan has four goals:  create a comprehensive trail system, maintain the trail system, have road and trail standards and promote a trail system.  These goals have related implementation policies.

Spokane County Comprehensive Plan - Regional Trails Plan.

In Memory of Robbi CastleberryRobbi Castleberry

One day you look back and realize there are a lot of us, who have been working on this "Trail" business for quite a while.  What began as an impossible idea has grown and become one of the most rewarding things about living in this area, thanks in part to Robbi Castleberry who just recently presented to the INTC Annual meeting the accomplishments and plans for the Palisades neighborhood and Rim Rock Conservation Area on the west side of Spokane.  Then boom, she was gone.  We were in the middle of working on some plans for a County Parks acquisition when I learned she’d died.  Isn’t that a lesson for all of us?

When I look at something wonderful, or experience something that is so high quality and there isn’t a logo or a sponsoring bill board on it, just land, I know there is a person – people – to thank.  There are people who pragmatically figure things out:  how to save open space for public enjoyment, how to link trails, how to get people outside and either in the water or next to it.  There are people who are part of an ethic of care and commitment and, frankly, no holds barred pragmatism.
Robbi was such a person.
