Bordering Spokane Valley, this conservation area includes a 5-mile loop through shady forest, granite monoliths, and bubbling brooks. The trail is mostly dirt singletrack, with plenty of hill climbs to keep even experienced trail runners interested. Start from the Iller Creek Trailhead off of Holman Road. Most runners choose to complete the loop counter clockwise, in order to get most of the climbing out of the way early and maximize enjoyment of the trail’s pinnacle — the stunning views from the Rocks of Sharon.

Essentials
