Since Rocks of Sharon are the clear highlight of the Iller Creek Dishman Hills Conservation Area, it makes sense to start at the Stevens Creek trailhead (south). Last time I did the entire loop starting from the Iller Creek trailhead (north). Both approaches are nice, though there is more shade on the Stevens Creek side. It's also much closer from there if all you want to do is visit Rocks of Sharon. There is a slope to climb up, but it's not too difficult if you take it slow and choose the gradual switchbacks over the straight uphill option.

The west fork of the Illers Creek portion of the trail has quite a few mosquitos - definitely wear bug spray!

Hiked a shorter loop starting at Stevens Creek trailhead about 4 mi. and was glad I took my sticks as some parts of trail were steep and slick with pine needles. No see ums were bad only when the wind stopped. Luckily they have a short hatch season and should be gone in June. Great views of Palouse, Step Toe(?) Butte. Wildflowers everywhere, few people. What's the story of the wrecked car up on the trail esp since there isn't a road to be found?!
