Upper Spokane River in Spokane, Harvard Park to Plantes Ferry
Peak 7 Adventure’s Rafting trip is such a thrill that most groups are willing to swim back to the beginning to do it all over again. But for those that aren’t up for swimming a few miles upstream, we are more than happy to give you a ride back to your vehicles. The Spokane River drains Coeur d'Alene Lake in Idaho. From its headwaters just across the border, it flows down the Spokane River Valley through the city of Spokane and on to the Columbia River. A large volume river, the Spokane River's waters are home to numerous species of fish including rainbow trout. As for the mammals, the riverbanks of the lower section can be home to beavers and raccoons with the hills housing coyotes and deer. Circling overhead can be seen ospreys, hawks, turkey and bald eagles.
Directions/Map:To reach the upper put-in at Harvard Park, take the Liberty Lake exit off I-90 and go north on Harvard Rd across the river. Turn left down a dirt road to Harvard Park.
