Here’s what this Backcountry Booty looks like!


Play the Out There Outdoors Backcountry Booty treasure hunt contest and you get to explore different trails around the region and possibly win gift certificates for cool outdoor gear and other prizes. Here’s how it works:

  1. We hide a booty certificate, that’s good for whatever prizes are up for grabs, near a trail somewhere in a park or recreation area in the greater Spokane area.
  2. We name the general location and offer up a few clues and photos on Facebook and the Out There Outdoors website (scroll down on this page for the clues and pics).
  3. You “like” the Out There Outdoors Facebook Page to keep in the loop when a new booty is up for grabs, and then check the contest page at to review all the current clues.
  4. You take care not to trample native plants/wildlife while you’re searchingNo digging, turning over rocks or disturbing shorelines, logs or brush that provide important wildlife habitat is required to find a booty and is highly frowned upon and will bring you bad booty karma! Walk, look around and pay attention to the clues and forest/nature around you. We also encourage you to take along a garbage bag for picking up trash whenever you’re out hunting for booty.
  5. We keep giving out clues on Facebook and on our website until someone finds the booty and wins.
  6. Winners take a victory photo at the location where they find it and post the photo on the Out There Outdoors Facebook page to confirm that the booty has been found (letting us know that you found the booty right away is important–email us with questions).
  7. Follow the instructions on the booty certificate and we will let you know where to pick up the prize(s)!


Clue #5: Keep going, almost there!

Clue #4: You’re headed in the right direction but still have a ways to go!

Clue #3: NOTE: THIS IS THE NEW BOOTY LOCATION! Given the warming temps and impending rain on top of snow that can lead to damage of singletrack trails, we moved this Booty from the Palisades Park area to somewhere within a half mile or so of this location along the paved Centennial Trail. The Booty is hidden within 10 or so feet of the trail. More clues coming Thursday. Good luck!

Clue #2: NOTE: THIS BOOTY HAS BEEN MOVED TO A NEW LOCATION! SEE CLUE #3. Somewhere a ways out there.

Clue #1: NOTE: THIS BOOTY HAS BEEN MOVED TO A NEW LOCATION! SEE CLUE #3. Find your way to this awesome view overlooking Spokane and begin your walkabout in this beautiful city park!
