Mount Spokane is the only county high point peak in the United States with the same name as its county, as well as the largest city in its county. So it is not surprising that this forested dome is an important local landmark and the centerpiece of a large and popular state park.

In summer, the summit area of Mount Spokane can be reached by automobile on a good, paved road. In the winter a ski area operates on the peak's east slope, with chairlifts reaching almost to the top. The very summit of the mountain has two distinct high areas: the slightly lower southern end, where the road ends in a circle near a forest of radio towers; and the higher northern end, crowned by the 1930s-era Vista House structure. The highest remaining natural rocks are just outside the front door of the Vista House.
