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.

Beautiful hike early in the morning.
The cool air smelled so fresh like the smell of pine from all the tall pine trees.
Colors were amazing and sitting on the rocks near the river and listening to the sound of the small waves and swirls was very relaxing.
Will go again in spring!

More of a mountain bike trail....took a Boy Scout pack and it was very narrow, had to keep moving for bikers, not clearly marked.....even following the map on this app was not helpful. Cool to explore with a couple people but not a good choice for a group.

Beautiful in Fall

fun for an easy afternoon hike

This is a great trail in the Spring or Fall. If you start along the creek it is shady and the incline is gradual. Definately take the south loop to see Rocks of Sharon and views of the Palouse. The east rim offers more sunshine and views of the Spokane Valley and beyond.

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

It’s absolutely stunning in the fall. 10/10

this trail is so beautiful at the moment! the fall colors are incredible. it's a nicely varied trail and a comfortable work out. I loved the views of the north side! we cant wait to bike it.

EDIT: previous commenter is correct about the distance change. close to 6 miles

beautiful falls but tweakers everywhere. people shooting up as we walked past

Great trail with phenomenal views of Spokane, Spokane Valley, Liberty Lake and into the Prairie.

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.

beautiful walk/hike

Pros: Close to Spokane, gradual incline, leads to impressive vistas at Rocks of Sharon area, good for trail running Cons: Not very challenging, can be dry and hot in summer,
A friend and I did this route late in the evening in early Sep. 2018. The actual hike itself is pretty easy, and the access road is very well marked and paved. The trail ascends parallel to the creek of its namesake for a ways, then breaks out into some short switchbacks, then you follow a ridge towards the Rocks of Sharon area, which offers some impressive vistas of the land where the forest meets the Palouse of Washington. We managed to watch the sunset from here, then followed the continuation of the loop , using headlamps, through scrub brush back to the trailhead. This would be an ideal trail for trail running, and/or an alternate access to Rocks of Sharon that is closer to Spokane. For someone looking for a spectacular trail with significant ascent, this does not offer that.
3/5 stars

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

My go-to hike in Spokane. Great trail. Not too far from town. Short enough to do after work in the summers. Great views of both the Palouse and Spokane. Couldn’t ask for more!

Nice trail, beautiful day and very few people (it’s a Tuesday). Saw an Osprey and enjoyed the many side trails.

Chill afternoon hike, TONS of people. Had fun on all the random side trails when we could escape the crowd. There really is a path for almost everyone, and I wouldn’t mind exploring more of the offshoots.

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.

This is a great biking trail. From time-to-time, you’ll meet hitchhikers going somewhere...

Nice trail. Kid friendly. All trails isn't completely accurate on distance. The 4.6 mile loop would be challenging to do w kids as the original trail is overgrown. We followed the loop past that and it cuts back down to the all trails making it about 6 miles. Still worth it. Very beautiful.

Very nice trail. Easy to navigate and great for beginners.

EASY TRAIL WELL MARKED ITS A GOOD TUNEUP FOR GETTING BACK INTO SHAPE. I DO WISH THEY HAD A COUPLE OF BENCHES WITH THE VIEWS THEY HAVE TO OFFER

Great hike- yes- lots of bees! Will do it again soon!
