Wondering what hiking conditions are like at Stevens Creek? Check out this live video

December 27, 2018

Want to hike at Stevens Creek but not sure whether to bring gaiters, snowshoes or just plain boots? Or, worried that it’s too crowded? Then check out Spokane County’s live video feed of the Stevens Creek trail head.

The feed is part of a wider effort to make parks more accessible and spread use out. In an interview earlier this month Spokane county park planner Paul Knowles said the video feeds will allow users to see if the trail is crowded on a particular day and plan accordingly. That helps “accommodate that growth by spreading the use out a little bit more. So not one area is hammered,” he said. Video feeds at other popular areas are planned.
