Whether you’re showing a friend around town, planning a romantic date, or just want to catch some views alone or with friends, these are some great places to watch the sun go down in Lilac City. Fiery skies, fresh air, and breathtaking sights make sunset-viewing a perfect activity for any evening year-round. And as summer approaches, we’re anticipating more spectacular sunset views in our future. Here are our top picks:
If the name didn’t give it away, Big Rock is, well, a big rock. It’s a 230-foot tall rock that overlooks the valley to Mount Spokane, as well as the Palouse to Steptoe Butte. You can climb it around dusk to watch the sun go down over the valley and truly feel like you’re on top of the world.
To reach Big Rock, drive to the Steven’s Creek parking lot located at Dishman Hills. You’ll walk for about three-quarters of a mile before arriving at the Big Rock.
Spokane Riverfront Park
Home to the second-largest waterfall in the United States, Spokane Riverfront Park is a true gem for watching the sunset. The park consists of 100 acres of natural beauty including views of the Spokane River winding over basalt rock and, of course, the gorgeous waterfall.
When the sun is setting over Spokane Riverfront Park, you can find a nice place to sit down, relax, and take a deep breath as you take in all the beauty.
High Drive Parkway
The lovely neighborhood of High Drive also has access to some incredible sunset views and is worth the visit. It’s perched between Hangman Creek (also known as Latah Creek) and Comstock, with an asphalt path, a conservation area, and some breathtaking bluffs.
We think the bluffs are the star of the show here, though you can’t really go wrong along this pathway. But if you’re looking for a beautiful place to walk around and maybe even frolic, the bluffs are a must. There’s plenty of space to sit down, relax, and watch the sun slowly slip away.
Little Spokane River Natural Area
For a remote sunset view without too much hiking, head to Little Spokane River Natural Area. This is where the Spokane River meets Little Spokane river, and the views are truly picturesque. You’ll have to walk half a mile to the vista point to reach the best views, but if you want a longer trek, you can also hike the riverside trails. Springtime is perfect for wildflower viewings at this point as well.
Looking for a good view that overlooks the valley? You can’t go wrong with aptly-named Overlook Park. This little park is a pleasant spot to hang out in the Brownes’ Addition neighborhood – close to the city but surrounded by beautiful nature.
This little bluff park comes with benches for sunset viewing and a gorgeous view of Hangman Creek and Sunset Hill. Pack a picnic, bring a friend or special someone, and enjoy the views.
A note on public consumption
As much as we love weed and weed-related activities here at our Spokane dispensary, we also care about your wellbeing. We want you to be safe and out of trouble. As such, we have to remind you that public marijuana consumption is illegal in Washington.
We’d all like to sit down at the park and spark up a joint with friends, but this is not only against the law, it can also be disruptive to other visitors of the public park. Avoid lighting up in public spaces and use always use your best judgment.
Additionally, always have a driver or an alternate form of transportation if you plan to get lit on your nature escapades. It’s also illegal to drive under the influence of marijuana – and it can also be dangerous.
With all that said, we know you’ll find a way to have a good time watching the sunset in Spokane.
