WTA has worked on trails in this 552-acre conservation area to help prevent erosion. A mile south of I-90 and within a 25-minute drive of 600,000 people, this property is an example of shrub steppe habitat that's remained relatively intact over the past century.

Over 7 miles of trail wind throughout the property, exploring canyons that embrace year-round springs and climbing ridge tops with views of Liberty Lake, Mount Spokane, and Saltese Flats. Because of it's openness, the Saltese Uplands is a great place to view wildlife. White-tailed deer, badger, coyote, and bobcats have been sighted. There is also a notable concentration of raptors (hawks, eagles, etc.) that use the updrafts created by the topography of the "uplands" to hunt throughout the conservation area and adjacent Saltese Flats.
