Who are the Friends of the Bluff?
Friends of the Bluff is the non-profit organization responsible for maintaining and protecting Spokane's High Drive Bluff. We are a group of hikers, runners, mountain bikers, dog walkers, bird watchers, and nature lovers who work together to maintain the bluff, purely on a volunteer basis.
We are a sustainable, community-supported organization that - through education, outreach, and direct conservation efforts - ensures that the Bluff will always be a protected, healthy, and natural ecosystem, accessible to all who wish to respectfully enjoy it.
Through volunteer efforts and community partnerships, we organize trail maintenance, fire suppression, invasive plant management, tree planting, park cleanup, and naturalist events.
Everything we do is made possible by the passion and care of the people in our community.
Join us and be a Friend of Bluff!
What is the High Drive Bluff?
Hundreds of people drive along High Drive on Spokane's South Hill every day, yet many are completely unaware of the 500 acres of Ponderosa Pine forests and bunchgrass meadows that thrive along a steep hillside below. This large natural space is known as the High Drive Bluff, and there is a lot more to explore than most people realize.
With over 20 miles of trails, the bluff is the perfect spot for anything from a morning stroll to a grueling mountain bike ride. It is also an ideal location for trail-running, hiking, dog-walking, birding, and watching the sunset.
