Iller Creek Conservation Area Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Spokane hikers have been enjoying the Dishman Hills Natural Resources Conservation Area (NCRA) for decades. With good trails and wildlife habitat just minutes from downtown Spokane, it’s no surprise this is a popular place. But is it a good destination for Rover? Sure, you can bring your best friend out for a stroll here, but the two of you will have plenty of company, perhaps too much.

So, here’s a better plan. Just south of the NRCA is Iller Creek, a brand new 800-acre conservation area, courtesy of Spokane County Parks. It’s twice as big as the NRCA, still within the Dishman Hills ecosystem, and contains miles of trails. Best of all, it gets a fraction of the visitors that the NRCA receives, making it a wonderful spot for you and Spot to enjoy nature."

Trail starts out as double wide but when it splits off into single wide there is heavy erosion and overgrowth. The ridge view at the top of the single wide climb is nice however and the trail cleans up a bit at the top. Info and map here - Very little signage or markings, plus lots of offshoots to explore. I uploaded a GPS.
