The Dishman Hills Natural area is a great place to hike and recreate right in your own back yard. Located on the south side of Spokane it has miles of trail that lead you through pine forests, up rocky balds, and down deep ravines. A little wilderness right within the city. The project we will be working on is to establish a designated trail between Camp Caro and Deep Ravine on the parks northeast side. Come join us for a great day of trail construction.

Dishman Hills has been protected as a natural area for over 30 years, serving as habitat for wildlife and as a recreational resource with miles of designated trails. Beginning in 1966, land was purchased and donated to protect the hills from urban sprawl and development. Spokane County Parks and Recreation Department, Washington State Department of Natural Resources and the nonprofit Dishman Hills Natural Area Association are partner stewards and have worked together to preserve this unique resource. In the Summer of 2008, a wildfire burned several acres along the southern boundary of the natural area along with several area homes.

The Project: We will be constructing a designated trail between Camp Caro and Deep Ravine on the parks northwest side.
