Dishman Hills Loop

Dishman Hills Loop Professional Review and Guide

"This route for explorers of all ages isn’t meant to be just a hike. It’s the beginning for years of enjoyment and exploration in Spokane’s backyard. The Dishman Hills Natural Resources Conservation Area, 530 acres and expanding, is a convenient reminder about the value of grassroots conservation involvement, which has secured this condo-proof preserve that’s nearly surrounded by development. It’s crisscrossed with trails for easy access to native flora and fauna and views of the Spokane Valley.

The area is particularly inviting in spring or fall, when wildflowers or changing leaves splash the pine-studded hills with color. Wildflowers such as grass widows and arrowleaf balsamroot bloom in April. Serviceberry blossoms open in May followed by wild rose, ocean spray, and a who’s-who of the native plants that once flourished throughout the region."

I would do this hike again, but the trails are horribly marked! We got lost for about an hour and ended up calling 911 to figure out how to get back to our car.
Very pleasant, easy hike morning after tackling the Liberty Creek Loop trail. Up and down elevations that surprised me only as I descended the trail to see how high I had gone. But nothing major. This trail is well-populated since it is in the middle of the Spokane Metro area. I did love the rocky cliffs and the pretty ponds.
