The walkability of the area depends on your location.

If you enjoy nature, this area has plenty of natural, rural-like destinations for walking and enjoying with your furry friend. 


 Spokane weather varies with the season. Winters are cold with temperatures below freezing and accumulation of snow. Icy conditions can persist and create treacherous walkways.

The Latah Valley is a large region centered along the Latay Creek which winds through the area. Route 195 runs north to south and the district extends for several blocks east and west of this thoroughfare from Indian Canyon in the north to S Hatch Road and the city limits on the southern border. 


There are facilities, commercial areas, housing developments, natural areas, parks, greenways, and rural properties located throughout the district which provide diverse terrain and landscape, depending on what part of the neighborhood you are located in. In the north, there are some apartment buildings and more commercial activities. To the south, newer housing developments occur in pockets amongst natural terrain. 


The region has varied terrain, although most roadways only have gentle inclines with surrounding natural terrain being more hilly, so you should be able to adjust your route accordingly. Train tracks also run north-south and should only be crossed by pedestrians and pets at designated crossing points.

When it comes to greenways, Latah Valley residents and their canine companions are spoiled for choice! On the north side, Indian Canyon occupies 155 acres around the Latah Creek and Spokane River with natural areas to explore with your pup. A little farther south, the High Bridge Park has 200 acres, 63 of which are developed. This park also has access to the creek with beautiful scenery along footpaths providing views of the creek and river. There is an 11-acre, off-leash dog park located here where your pup can play.

High Drive Bluff Park is a large 500-acre natural space with 20 miles of trail system. There is a variety of wildlife in the area and dog walkers should keep their dogs leashed as coyotes in the region can pose a danger to pets.

A more developed park in the area is Wendel Grant Park which, at 10.57 acres, provides sports fields, a playground, picnic shelters, and a restroom.
