Views from Iller Creek Conservation Area

National Trails Day! Eastern Washington - Spokane Area. Join us for a day of trail improvements and maintenance within Spokane's Iller Creek Conservation Area. We will address a very steep and eroding section of trail. Join us as we work on constructing a reroute of approximately 1,000' which will take replace this rutted section of trail.

The Iller Creek drainage begins at south end of property and flows through cool, north-facing valley along lush riparian corridor and contains 163 invertebrate species, 86 bird species, 15 mammals and 2 amphibians. The area provides white-tailed deer and Rocky Mountain elk winter range and migratory corridor and a nesting area for Red-tailed hawks. From the south loop hikes are possible using the East Ridge, Upper Valley and West Fork trails. From the south the area is accessed by the Stevens Creek trail to Big Rock.

The Project: We will be reconstructing the trail on some steeply eroded sections of the East Ridge and West Fork of the Iller Creek Loop Trail. Once we finish that we will address additional maintenance work on other trails in the area. The work will involve digging tread, brushing, drainage work and other activities.
