No Alibi Ski Run - start the ascent (read warning)
This hike more-or-less follows the first ski lift up to the peak. There is NO trail, you are hiking cross-country in at times heavy underbrush with uneven ground and some rock. I liken the angle to climbing up a ladder that's against the side of a house. At times 35º+/-. Lets just say its steep... but the views are well worth it. Plus, if you go up on a weekend, you might well get gawkers who drove to the top steering down at you.
WARNING: Once again, proper footwear is imperative, I recommend well fitting hiking boots with ankle support, and liner socks. Trekking poles are also HIGHLY recommended to help keep your footing and to take some work off your feet.
Bring plenty of water - also for your dog if you have one along. This side of Mt. Spokane gets upwards of 18 hours of sun in the summer, and there is no shade. There are trees, but the undergrowth there makes it impassible.
With the sun, bring a wide brimmed hat, your forehead and neck will thank you.
DOGS: If you bring a dog, make sure he/she is in shape for this type of climb. My dog hikes 150 miles a month, this trip up No Alibi had him panting more than I have ever seen him do. Not only do dogs have the incline to contend with, but they have to jump over or find a way through a lot of undergrowth.
HUCKLEBERRIES: Since you've read this far, FYI - this is the 2nd best spot for huckleberries in Mt. Spokane State Park. First two weeks or so of August. Go up next to the green ski lift tower right beside Trail 130 and your in the thick of the huckleberries. Some people come pick berries up from the bottom of the run, but up here, hardly anyone comes. Even has the red leafed plants with sweet redish huckleberries, which I believe are the "real" huckleberries.
