Started at the Stevens Creek Trail head. Snow and ice throughout the trail and then mud at the top near big rock. Beautiful views to the south and able to see Steptoe Butte.

A little icy in a couple of the places that the sun didn’t hit, but other than that it was easy to follow and wasn’t crowded at all!

Very nice trail with great views but busy on the weekends. It’s January and the trail is pretty icy right now

Nice close-in trail with lots of diverse topography. Great views of the valley and toward Dishman/Mica Rd. Very muddy and icy Jan 6th; wish I’d had my poles and/or trax in a few places.

One of my favorite places, it has a bit of everything. Enough miles of trails to spread people out helps even if the parking lot is full (which is all summer).
I would call this an easy hike as there really are no steep sections, and for the work you put in it's about as good a view as you can get around here.

It’s open now! I’m excited to come back and snowshoe this trail! It will be perfect for that!

It’s open now! New trail head and parking!

open and fun

We started at the south trail head for "Stevens Creek" off of Stevens Creek Road. This hike had a little bit of everything. Both steep and gradual climbs, great views, granite outcroppings and well maintained trails. The uploaded photos on this site give a pretty accurate account of the scenery. Very, very nice.

Such a awesome view at the top! Over looking all of the Spokane Valley

Started from the Steven's Trailhead on the Rose of Sharon trail, which for someone out of shape wasn't the best because it was all an uphill climb & at times, rather steep. (wasnt aware of the rise in elavation). Definitely needs better trail markers.

Great trail, clearly marked. The bees were certainly out in abundance for this day at the beginning of the trail, but not aggressive so no worries. The views were outstanding, especially in and around the the Rocks... well worth the drive for this one.

Amazing Overlooks! Would recommend going on a clear blue sky day.

The sign says it’s closed until October 30th 2018. :(

Incredible.

Left the Iller Creek trailhead at 6:00pm, perfect time to arrive at the top for the sunset vista, which was brilliant with the hazy smoke and lined with jet lines. When we arrived at the granite outcroppings lit purple like an Instagram purple from the alpine glow.

2 guys were rappelling down, a few other solo walkers journeyed by and said hi.

We hardly needed our headlamps on the way down (at first) because of the skyline of Spokane Valley, (mainly Sprague). The cicadas were in chorus on either side of the trail. We arrived at our car around 8:00 in total darkness and there were still 4 more vehicles in the parking lot.

Read the reviews & hit the trail on Friday 8/31/18 with my small terrier. Great visas, clean trails & nice people. Had a wonderful time & plan to return next month.

May be a good place for an adult runner, but not a good family hike. Homeless all over. Was worried about leaving our car, did not feel safe. Glass on a lot of the trail so not safe for dogs either. I will say the park area was pretty well maintained and the trail is newly paved. Just not worth all the worries. There are much better hike trails out there.

I've been running this the last couple days with my dogs off leash and there is rarely anyone on it. it's kept clean and I really like it. it's nice to have a little bit of nature in the big city!

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.

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!
