Dishman Hills Glenrose Trailhead

The Glenrose Unit of Dishman Hills Conservation Area is a 607-acre open space area owned and managed by Spokane County Parks, Recreation & Golf. The property is bordered on the east by the Ponderosa Neighborhood (City of Spokane Valley) and on the west by the Glenrose Neighborhood (just outside of the City of Spokane). The property currently has no off-street parking, with most visitors parking at the north end of  South Theirman Road.  The trail system consists of primitive former access roads with some single track, including The Cliffs Trail built by Dishman Hills Conservancy with volunteers for several different organizations and the recently completed Blue Bunch Trail.

The goal of this project is to work with the community to design and develop a new trailhead parking area to accommodate visitors safely and effectively.
