"Bones of the Hills" Hike to Eagle Peak
Saturday, January 18th, 1 - 4 pm at Camp Caro (625 S Sargent Rd)
Winter is a great time to ramble through the Dishman Hills. The trees have lost their leaves and the grasses are gone during the cold months, exposing the beautiful landscape of the Natural Area. Join DHC Education Chair Rick Severn and discover the "Bones of the Hills" to experience the Dishman Hills Natural Area in a brand-new way.
This is a moderately strenuous 4 mile hike in the northernmost area of the Dishman Hills. Rick will lead you through the Deep Ravine to Goldback Springs and then up to Eagle Peak with its fabulous views of Spokane Valley and the surrounding mountains. The view from Eagle Peak also shows the possible connection to the south conservation units known as Glenrose and Iller Creek.
The trails are moderately difficult and may be muddy or icy in places. Please wear boots or shoes that are appropriate for uneven terrain. Weather can be iffy, so bring layers of clothing to stay warm and dry. Sunset is at 4:30pm, we may be hiking in low-light so headlamps are recommended as well.
We will meet as a group at the lower, all-season parking lot at 1 pm, which is located immediately to the right at the beginning of Sargent Rd. No Discover Pass is required! Bring water, snacks, and hiking poles if you wish. Dogs are allowed on leash. The hike is free, but we request you to register so we know how many to expect
