Title: Tell me about Inland Empire Paper access in GMU 124 - Mount Spokane
Post by: Molon5labe on August 12, 2019, 01:34:13 PM
I'm looking online at their access maps, and it seems that the only access to their land is a gate down by quartz mtn off hwy 206. All their other parcels have X's at the access point that says "no public access." Is that one gate really the only access to IEP land?

Is the access above Newman Lake still open, or the back side of Mt. Spokane, outside of Blanchard?

Im not positive but i think you can get their via state land  off blanchard if the other gates are closed.  Last time i was there i had to park at the gate and hike in.  IEP land straddles either side.

I believe it is off of Muzzy Rd., which is on the north side of the lake.

There are multiple access points for the IEP land in Mt Spokane, one from the west side of the property, and another from the east, with roads going through the enitrety of the property connecting to each side.
