Iller Creek Loop Professional Reviews and Guides

"Head through the gate and immediately turn left. The trail soon begins switchbacking up a brushy open slope. At 0.8 mile, the trail gains the ridge, with views to the east (left) of Mica Peak (elev. 5205 ft) and its summit FAA radar dome. Follow the ridge, soon heading into scattered ponderosa pines and eventually Douglas-firs. At 1.5 miles the trail forks. Continue left."

"This low-elevation loop right outside Spokane leads through a pleasant forest to tall granite cliffs and views over the rolling green Palouse country.

The granite cliffs will surprise you by appearing as you round a bend on the trail. From the top of a rocky ridge, you’ll descend among grass and flowers back toward the Spokane Valley."
