    Hike to the Glenrose Unit of the Dishman Hills Conservation Area including new 1-mile loop.

    Wednesday, July 31st   6-8:30 pm

    This hike goes to the Glenrose Unit of the Dishman Hills. It is approximately 6.2 miles round trip over sometimes steep terrain and moderate difficulty. On the route back there will be significant uphills. The trail starts at the end of Thierman Road in the Glenrose area. From here, we will travel the new "family loop" for .8 mile. This is a just finished section of nearly flat trail with beautiful views of the south hill. Then we will rejoin the regular trail to either the meadow, or depending on group interest, all the way to the "Cliffs" at about 3 miles. The return trip will be shorter as we will bypass the "family loop".   Because of the distance and elevation changes, the hike is fairly strenuous and moderately difficult. Pace will be faster and meant for the regular hiker. There will be conservation information stops.

    Dogs are allowed on leash. No parking pass required. Meet in parking lot at the end of Thierman Rd.

    Bring hiking poles, snacks, water and dress for the weather.  Because of the advanced terrain, boots and traction devices would be most appropriate footwear.

    Event is free, but registration is requested. 

    Note: trip leaders will decide IF cancellation is warranted and notify registrants of cancellation by 6 am the previous morning to the hike. So, check your emails the day prior to the scheduled hike.

    The Dishman Hills Conservancy, Mountain Gear, and Inland Northwest Hikers are hosting a National Summit Day celebration at the Big Rock Meadows adjoining the County-owned Iller Creek Unit of the Dishman Hills Conservation Area.

    There will be one or more hikes starting from the Stevens Creek Trailhead at 10 am. Mountain Gear will be providing burgers at 12 noon in the newly acquired Big Rock Meadows. But you must register so that we have enough grub!

    DHC will have plenty of information about our plans to add more land, trails and trailheads to the Dishman Hills. This acquisition is a spectacular addition - check it out.

    The access is off of the Palouse Highway south of the South Hill or east from Valleyford. Go slow on Stevens Creek Road because it is a narrow gravel road with plenty of twisty sections.

    PERSEID METEOR SHOWERS

    Join the DHC, the Lands Council, and Paul Yost from the Spokane Astronomical Society on Sunday August 11th to experience the Perseid meteor shower, a once a year opportunity! 

    The Perseid meteor shower is an annual astronomical event that is caused by Earth passing through the space debris left behind by the Comet Swift-Tuttle - the largest object known to repeatedly pass by Earth. Although the comet last came close to Earth in 1992, Earth travels through the trail of dust and debris left behind by it every year in early August, which creates the vibrant Perseid meteor showers that fall through Earth's atmosphere. 

    This year, the best time to view the meteor shower falls on Sunday, August 11th. We will meet at the Stevens Creek trailhead at 9 pm and walk a few hundred yards to an open meadow for best viewing. The outing will be led by the Dishman Hills Conservancy and the Lands Council, and Paul Yost from the Spokane Astronomical Society who will speak more about the meteor showers during the viewing.

    Dishman Hills Conservancy will provide hot chocolate for everyone. Bring a jacket, water, and a blanket or a portable chair if you wish to sit down to view the meteors. Dress for the weather, and bring layers! 

    This is going to be a popular event, so register soon! We will fill up
