WTA claims to have opened seven new miles of trail at Fishtrap Lake (near Spokane) this year.  This is described in the second paragraph below the (nonfunctional) map:

https://www.wta.org/our-work/about/accomplishments/2018-accomplishments

I was just there for the first time this spring and really liked it.  At that time, there were a couple designated trails on the west side of the lake, but those trails were already there in previous years as far as I can tell from TRs.  The WTA map was perhaps intended to show where the new trails are but since it is broken there is no way to figure anything out.   shakehead.gif

Anyone familiar enough with the trails at Fishtrap to sort this out?   confused.gif

I'm hoping to take my wife there in wildflower season.  The tent camping at the resort is mediocre but the resort itself is really cool.

Nice. I'll have to check this out now that it's in my neck of the woods.

Definitely check out the old resort if you go.  I'm sure they would let you park and walk around.  It's funky!  Once there, you might as well walk the shore south until it peters out at some cliffs.  It is all public land except you have to park on the private resort to access that little chunk I think.

In all my travels, I have never heard morning birdsong like I did at Fishtrap Lake.  The birds were yelling to be heard over the songs of other birds.   dizzy.gif  It was time to get up anyway!
