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

    Sat. June 29   9a.m.-1p.m.

    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. 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 moderately difficult. Pace will be moderate. 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.

    Morning Hike from Iller Creek

    Tuesday, July 2nd, 8 am.

    Chris Baldini will lead this fairly difficult hike on rugged trails up the 5.5-mile loop from the Iller Creek Trail Head to the Rocks of Sharon with big views over the Palouse and yellow canola fields. The elevation gain is 1200' so it is best for those who are physically fit and hike regularly.

    This dog-friendly hike will start at 8 am and we will be back at the cars by 1:00 pm. Bring some snackswater, a light jacket, and sunscreen. Bug spray is optional. Dogs are encouraged but leashes are required.

    We will meet at the Iller Creek Trailhead at 9100 E Holman Road.

    Event is free, but registration is required.

    Directions to Trailhead: From I-90, take the Argonne Road exit 287. Drive south on Argonne Road. Continue past Sprague Avenue onto Dishman-Mica Road, driving approximately 2.8 miles. Turn right at the Schafer Road stoplight and cross the railroad tracks. Continue until Schafer Road tees into 44th Ave and turn right on 44th. Go one block and turn left on Woodruff, continue on Woodruff to Holman and turn right and stay on Holman to the Trailhead sign. [Proceed slowly through the neighborhood.]

    Big Rock Addition Hike

    Stevens Creek Trailhead

    DHC Executive Director Jeff Lambert will lead you through the new 120-acre Big Rock Addition.  The route is approx. 3 miles with some steep and difficult trails as well as some sections off trail. 

    This property provides access to Big Rock and has to be protected for access trails and a buffer for the Rocks of Sharon.  This will also connect with other properties to the east and west.  

    Hiking poles recommended. Bring snacks and water, and dress for the weather.  

    Event is free, but please register so we know how many to expect.

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

    NATIONAL SUMMIT DAY at ROCKS OF SHARON: The Dishman Hills Conservancy and Mountain Gear 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.
