Rocks of Sharon/Iller Creek Walk - Rich Leon: This is a nature walk led by naturalist Rich Leon. We start from Iller Creek and walk up the cool Iller Creek drainage from the Spokane Valley to the Rocks of Sharon. The Rocks are a group of large granite monoliths known for providing stunning views of the Palouse. Join us for this 4.5 mile loop hike as we explore this memorable landscape and the surrounding area, including features like Big Rock, a 230-foot granite pillar which towers above the trail, and the local wildlife. Don’t be surprised if you see the occasional moose while exploring in this area.
The hike will culminate at the base of the rocks, providing views of the Palouse and Mt. Spokane. With such iconic and beautiful spots within sight, you will want to be sure to bring a camera with you to capture the views for memory. Though the trail is well maintained, this is a strenuous walk. Good footwear and weather-appropriate clothing are essential. Bring water and lunch. If you are accompanied by your pet, please bring water for it as well as for yourself.
The Inland Northwest Land Conservancy and the Dishman Hills Conservancy are the joint sponsors for this nature walk.
