      This region is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!

      The McMaster Hills provide relatively level cross-country trails on BLM lands. The area was formerly part of the McMaster Ranch, a 5,000+-acre operation around the Spokane Hills. There are two trailheads, east and west. The eastern trailhead is off Eagle Bay Drive, and the western trailhead is off Keir Road.

      None of the trails in this area are system trails, and their future status cannot be guaranteed.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
