The Mountain Magic Trail Run
on the gorgeous Mt. Spokane Nordic ski trails, scheduled for June 20, 2020, has been canceled due to COVID-19 social gathering restrictions. In its place, consider the Pick Your Path Community Challenge, a new virtual run on the same weekend, June 19-21. Pick your own 5, 10 or 25k route or one of the suggested routes on the event site at pickyourpathchallenge.com. It's a great way to celebrate the beginning of summer together, at a distance!
You can even run the Mt. Spokane Nordic ski trails that make up the Mountain Magic course and record your time on the UltraSignup page to share and compare. We just can't mark, monitor or manage an event there.
If you already registered for this year's Mountain Magic event, we will transfer your registration to the Pick Your Path Community Challenge and offer a credit for the difference in cost toward next year's Mountain Magic run. Watch for an email from the Race Director.

Mt. Spokane State Park has one main entrance at the end of State Road 206, otherwise known as Mt. Spokane Park Drive, about 15 miles east of U.S. Hwy 2. The Park office is just inside the boundary on the left. The Nordic area is a little over 3 1/4 miles up the paved road from the main entrance. Follow the main road to the top where the summit road goes left and the road to the alpine ski area goes straight and downhill.The road leading up to the Selkirk Lodge and the ski trails is to the right, at the back of the large overflow parking lot. Head up that road and park by the Selkirk Lodge. View the online map.
*Please note a WA State Parks Discover Pass is required within the State Park. Passes can be purchased at local outdoors retailers, at the Park office just up the road from Bear Creek Lodge, or at the pull-out kiosk a little past the office.
