Trailhead is closed for reconstruction through July 30th, 2018.

Parked at the south trailhead for "Stevens Creek" off of Stevens Creek Road. Hiked a little under a mile to "Big Rock" and enjoyed the views of the Palouse to the South and Spokane Valley to the North. From where the Stevens Creek Trail meets the Iller Creek Loop at the top I recommend going down on the East (right) loop, as it is more exposed and steep, and then up on the West (left) loop, as it is shaded and less steep. Iller Creek Trailhead to the North off of Dishman Mica is also an access point for the entire area. Good trail for dogs, there is a creek along the west loop.

Great hike with beautiful views in all directions. A portion of the trail goes through the forest along a creek and makes it for a nice cool—down. The rocks are obviously amazing. Bring lots of water as it gets hot this time of the year! Very dog friendly. We will be back!

Great views. Varied landscape. Clean, marked trails. Definitely will revisit this one.

Loved it!

Decent hike for kids. Took 8 and 6 year old on it. Would do it again.

Unbelievable!!!

needs better trail markers

Great trail run. Perfect amount of hills and views and grass and trees.

my best friend and I took our kids here 2 days ago. we had a great time on the hike and we found the waterfall. unfortunately a dog jumped from the above cliff and almost landed on my daughter and the owners were somewhere but a stranger came down and got the dog and took it up to the owners. it was an upsetting trip and we will never go back. BE CAREFUL!

I love this Trail. It is a lot of up and down and it goes into wide-open territory so there's little shade from the Sun after the first part. But as beautiful views of the South Hill and the rest of Spokane. Very little traffic on this Trail. I was able to find my way easily as I stayed on the app all trails and my little blue. Show me exactly where I was. Definitely will be one I will do more often.

Great main trail, although I found about 5 ticks on my fur baby about 30 min into our hike. (Frontline clearly doesn’t work) and one crawling on me. Also most of the trails on this map are no longer there.

Excellent hike. One of my favorites. 6.5 mile loop.

great little trail with minor ups and downs that meander up and over the hills great views of the south hill lower down town the valley and even i believe valley ford. definitely a nice day hike you could take your kids and explore. the trail was well packed and easy to follow in most areas not to much brush to go through, enjoyed the hike.

Still snow and ice in spots on 03/10/18. I liked that it was nicely paved and taken care of, but don’t think I’ll be back. Kinda one of those things where you do it once and then don’t feel the need to come back.

Beautiful hike to the rocks on a crisp February day. We started out with the sun on our backs and snow on the trail. Higher we got less snow on the trail but the sun disappeared and got chilly.
Gorgeous view from the top. We ate lunch snapped some picks and headed down just before sundown.

it's more fun in the snow and off trail! but be careful... lol

Finished the hike but there is a lot of ice and snow and mud from the runoff. Would definitely wait till it’s warmer out. Beautiful view though!

Looks like a nice trail. We went part way in and weren’t prepared for the ice/snow-covered trail. Will try again when the weather is warmer.

We love this hike! My girls have done this with me too, they are 7 and 4... We brought snacks and took breaks but they did it! At the bottom, there are a lot of butterflies to catch and look at, which the girls just love. I have also seen a moose towards the top! I love having this trail so close to home.

great hike close to town

Trail is not well marked So be aware of your surroundings!

Great hike! Look for the gate on your left hand side when you are driving there. Keep an eye out for furry friends as well☺️

Fun hike, really great views all the way around the loop!

Ran last Saturday morning when in town visiting family. Great location 15 mins from south hill...a lot closer than something we westsiders often deal with. Started south end and ran counter clockwise. Steep grind to start and long grind after turning at the north end. Good to see a mix of runners, walkers and bikers enjoying a beautiful Saturday morning.

Went for a very smokey hike this morning the trail markers are different from the map on this app towards the end so I have no idea if I was in the right spot or not but it was awesome regardless!

Used this trail for initial prep for Grand Canyon rim to rim hike. Easy access, beautiful views, not much traffic (it was hot, >90). Multiple side trails and tracks to provide varied elevation gain. Wind picked up at sunset. Porcupine crossed the trail right in front of us at dusk.

Great hike. If it is 6.8 miles, it is a long 6.8 miles. I don't say that to complain because I loved the hike, but it seems longer than 6.8 miles. Plus if you wanted to do a shorter hike there are ways to do it. If you want a shorter hike and still get the great views start from the Stevens Creek Trailhead. There is a connection between the East fork and West Fork of the Iler Creek trails about halfway that would make it shorter. Bottom line: fun hike with lots of different terrain and things to look at.
