Hike along Iller Creek

5 Miles Total - 1200 ft gain - Loop Trail

Originally added by Rose Freeman

Hike a loop through a pine, beech, birch, and larch forest along Iller Creek and see Spokane Valley's "Big Rocks"! Total mileage: 5.0 miles, loop. Elevation gain: 1200 ft. Highest point: 3200 ft.

Iller Creek hike leads you on a 5 mile loop through lush shaded forest to a ridge with excellent views of the Eastern Washington Palouse. I love the variety of trees through the forest on this hike! Half way through the hike you reach the Big Rocks (Rocks of Sharon) which is a popular rock climbing destination! Continue on through the loop back through a birch forest. I like to hike this loop counter-clockwise up along the creek and down across the ridge! This is one of my favorite hikes in Spokane and is also an excellent snowshoe route in the winter!

Iller Creek

Great hike. Can get busy during peak times. Watch for moose!

It’s a fun hike.

This hike is a must do if you’re in the area.

Relaxing, Yet Invigorating

So far, this is my favorite spot to hike in the entire Spokane Valley area. A 45-60 minute walk through the woods concludes with an amazing overlook of miles of land hidden behind the mountain. Absolutely incredible to see during day or night.
