Waikiki (or "spouting water") Springs rests on the banks of the Little Spokane River.  The 95-acre Nature Preserve is adjacent to Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife property of the same name. It is named for the myriad springs that flow from the hillside, into the river, keeping it a moderate temperature year-round. The vegetation along the riverbanks shade the water from the elements and create ideal habitat for local fish. In the intricate food web, these fish draw many other plants and animals. A bald eagle's nest is visible from the Preserve and it is frequented by deer, coyotes, beavers, moose and many more.

Under INLC's ownership and management, this property will be open for the enjoyment of the community and accessible through the WDFW parking lot detailed below. Discover passes are required for this trailhead.
